Kathy Barker will present Filigree, a highly ornamental design technique that gives a letter that WOW look. It is actually simpler than it appears.  Basic repeated patterns, usually organic in nature, are used to fill in the spaces around and inside a letter.

Come to this program to learn how you can create a beautiful letter enhanced by filigree.  Easy sample sheets, inspiring historical examples and paper will be provided. Please bring a 0.5 mechanical pencil and a 005 Micron or other fine point pen (if possible red and blue would be best). $3 supply fee

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!
