SCH Fall 2015 Workshop: Adventures in Embossing

On December 5, 2015 the Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) will be sponsoring the workshop, “Adventures in Embossing with Janice Fisher” in Renton, WA.

Janice has developed a technique to create beautiful, intricate, hand embossing using simple materials and tools. She has used these techniques to produce flowers, gardens, animals, abstract images, desert landscapes and even an embossing of the first atomic bomb test. These embossings will add beauty and meaning to your calligraphy and book art.

In this workshop you will learn how simple elements can be used to provide design accents or be combined to create landscapes and scenes. An intricate multi-layer composite 3D image will also be created. The key elements of graphic design, image selection, simplification and layering will be covered. Tools, paper selection, stencil production, design principles and perspective will be covered. Each student will leave the class with set of stencils they produced and the techniques to create beautiful hand embossing.

For more information and the registration form, please view the workshops page on our website. Please join us for this fun and educational workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!
