Beautiful decorated letters have been the cornerstone of a calligraphers’ repertoire throughout the years.  Come and enhance your skills as we design our way through a series of exercises that will guide you through decorating on, in and around the letters.  You will create innovative designs, unique letter “boxes”, flourishes, vines, etc. while working with gouache, gold and handmade paper.  Packet of colorful handouts.
