CONTINUING MODERN CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP
SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 2018
5113 S. Harper Ave., Suite 2C Chicago, IL 60615
3:00P - 6:00P
This workshop is recommended for students who have completed the beginner's level class (or any basic modern calligraphy instruction). Essentially for students who feel they have gained a bit of control already with their pointed pen work (note: you are someone who won't be picking up a nib holder and inserting a nib for the very first time).

I teach so many concepts in the beginner's course, this 3 hours gives us a chance to play and continue to explore some of these techniques with "real world" uses and different ink mediums. The only thing you will need to bring is your own nib holders and nibs.

Workshop includes:

  • 3 hours of instruction with Christy Toney
  • 1 jar of black ink / 1 jar of bleed proof white
  • Variation Drill worksheets: Bouncing letters, Connecting letters, Controlling/Consistent Shades, Beginning flourishes
  • Use of my materials: Gum Arabic, Pearl-Ex pigments, Gouache paint, Finetec gold, Tombow brush markers, Embossing powder and Embossing heat tool
  • Unlimited scrap paper and substrates to work on... Blank envelopes, Foldover cards, Place cards, Misc. metallic cardstock that you can walk with
  • Complimentary address guide and tips on addressing any sized envelope
