“TOOLS GALORE”

There are hundreds of tools available to calligraphers today – square-edged, pointed, folded, wood, fountain, suede and pointed.  It’s so confusing!  Don’t spend a fortune buying tools that you are not sure of.  Have you bought tools you just “had to have”, but haven’t used, or don’t know how to use, or haven’t been been able to make them work??  I haven’t used them all, but I have tried many of them.  Join me for a demonstration of some of the many tools I love and figured out how to use successfully.  Learn to be the BOSS of your tools and how to make bad tools into good ones
