SCH Meeting – September 15, 2016

The Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting’s (SCH) next meeting is Thursday, September 15th, at 7pm at First Presbyterian Church of Bellevue in room UC-105. Please view our meetings page for the address and directions.

Our Fall kick-off meeting features Kathy Barker presenting the ruling pen and folded pen. With its traditional origins as a drafting tool, the ruling pen and its humble cousin, the folded pen, have become one of the most innovative and creative tools for the modern calligrapher. Come and learn a simple alphabet, try a variety of tools, and learn how expressive this tool can be. We will also explore adding watercolor washes for further creative opportunities. Alphabet exemplars, samples of styles and guide sheets will be provided.

Please bring paper for experimentation (white copy paper is fine), writing fluid of your choice (walnut ink or black sumi or Higgins Eternal), any ruling pen and/or folded pen that you already own (extra pens to try will be in abundance.) and a spirit of creative energy and fun! The supply fee is $2.00 to cover copy costs and extra paper, etc.

Enjoy participating in an optional raffle for $2.00. Visitors are welcome to attend to see if they would like to join our guild. We look forward to seeing you there!
