The traditional tool of the calligrapher for more than 2000 years, the broad-edged pen enables us to create many beautiful styles of calligraphy, including Roman, Uncial, Italic, Carolingian and various forms of Gothic.    In this class we will be learn the basic rules of the pen itself as well as some of the fundamentals of two classical lettering styles.  Although mastery of the pen cannot be achieved in a few hours, this class will open the door to a wide range of exciting and beautiful calligraphy.  This workshop is for students familiar with the pointed pen who have had little or no experience with the broad-edge, as well as complete beginners to calligraphy.

Hand-made greeting cards can be both a work of art and a special gift.  This workshop is for calligraphers and non-calligraphers alike to learn a simple pop-up fold that has several delightful variations.  We will work together to make some beautiful finished cards.

  • Several squares of lightweight colored paper, measuring (approx.) 6" x 6" or 7" x 7", or 15 x 15 cm.ORIGAMI paper is the best, but any lightweight paper is fine.

  • 3 or 4 blank folded cards, measuring 4" x 6" or 5" x 7" (or similar sizes).  If you don't have blank cards we can fold and cut paper, as long as the paper isn't too lightweight (the weight of a greeting card is preferable).
