Presented by Diane McDougall-Desautelle
Some might say that calligraphy is a dying art. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a large and thriving community of calligraphers and lettering artists here in New England and across the country. Join Diane for an overview of the different families of calligraphy, including different types of pen nibs, tips for getting started, online resources, and places to find supplies. She will demonstrate pointed pen and broad edge pen “hands” as well as hand-lettered alphabets using pencils and marker tips.
