Saturday, Nov. 24th’s Mentoring Meetup

This Meetup was lead by Gail Fournier and the theme was Lettering on Black. ECS is sponsoring 3 Mentoring Meetups for the 2018/19 calendar year. Thank you Gail for leading us through a day of fun learning & exciting experimentation. ECS is delighted to have the Artelier as a studio working space. Members treat themselves to a day of sharing ideas/techniques/tools/paper and mediums.

Below are photos of some of the day’s sharing & experimentation.


Bleach on various papers. The list of papers is below with Mungyo Pastel sticks.


These first few samples – bleach is still wet but there are signs of some changes occuring.
