Colorado Calligraphers’ Guild presents

Modern Playful Handwriting with Julie Wildman

Live online workshop November 7 & 14

10am-4pm MST

Members: $100

Non-members: $130


Class Description

Starting with the pointed pen, students will begin exploring the basic strokes and lowercase letters from the traditional copperplate hand. We will then move on to some exercises that break the rules of the traditional to give us the more modern, playful look. On the second day, we will try the pointed brush and begin writing quotes in small compositions, using color and other inks.

This is a live online workshop with full interaction with the instructor during class time. This workshop will be recorded and available to view at any time.
