Celebrating a 45-year milestone, our not-for-profit guild looks forward to the evolution of calligraphic arts. Our spring exhibition also marks our 20th anniversary at Neilson Park Creative Centre—an inviting place to share our love of lettering with the community. Visit our exhibition at Neilson Park Creative Centre from April 23-May 13.
We were at Neilson Park Creative Centre’s Spring Handmade Sale on Saturday, April 6, with calligraphy-inspired gift ideas and our calligraphy crew in action, including instructors Mark Lurz and Starlee Lively Odorico.
It turned out ro be a ‘turquoise’ afternoon at our Guild meeting when members tried their hands making Decorated Paper with Susan Mentis. It remains to be seen how calligraphy and colour will be incorporated in our May Guild exhibition!
Heather Victoria Held created a weekend full of ‘Line Dances’ with the offhand flourish. Her demonstration provided insight into the techniques that make lines ‘dance’ with sparkle colour, crystals and gold!
