A “Taste” of Calligraphy

Sunday, March 3, 12:30–2:30 PM

The Rhode Island calligraphy studio, Scribe, is offering a two-and-a-half hour “tasting” workshop for those who want to learn the art of calligraphy. Currently in vogue for wedding and social stationery, calligraphy is also great for cards, books, and personalized gifts. Have an upcoming wedding or special event? This class is for you!
Jane Parillo, the owner of Scribe, will guide you through this visual art process. The class is designed so that students can use simple exercises to get experience using the broad-edged pen. In a brief introduction, Jane will explain various historical “hands” and the function of some lettering tools, as well as discuss the concepts of spacing and proportion. Students will then do some hands-on work with provided calligraphy pens. (Participants will be able to keep their pens.) Tea and scones will also be served.

$30 Member, $35 Non-member. $5 materials fee

But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
  • Goodnight gardens (Dec 05, '14)
    After some festive weeks spent preparing for our Christmas display and this week’s wreath workshops, it was pure pleasure to be out in the gardens again. Despite the chill that crept into fingers and toes. Earlier this fall we got a jump on what’s commonly known as “putting the gardens to bed”. — I must have already […]
