Letter-Locking/Some History and Techniques

Use your calligraphy, beginner to advanced, to create letter-locked letters. This is a way letters were sent in early modern Europe before the invention of envelopes. 

Live, not recorded. I will send diagrams of all classes, so you can do the techniques if you miss a class.
