About this event
When & Where
Date and time: Sat, 26 November 2022, 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM MDT
Location: St. Paul’s Anglican Church 10127 145 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB T5N 2X6
We will take a quick look at the development of calligraphy through the ages and where the various ‘hands’ fit into historical periods. A variety of writing tools will be shown and demonstrated using different types of ink, gouache, and watercolours. We’ll talk about nib and paper preparation and you’ll learn how to take your Pilot Parallel Pen apart to clean the sections and also refill the cartridges, if you so-choose. You will have an opportunity to try out the pens, inks and papers to learn how they work together (or not!) and take your samples home in a little package. This is your opportunity to ask questions and move forward on your Calligraphic Journey!
Supplies to Bring:
If you have your own Pilot Parallel Pen, bring it along, but tape your name on it.
If you have a pointed pen holder and nib and want some guidance, bring it, too.
Notebook and pen/pencil.
Bring your lunch and a water bottle so you can eat during the break.
