Workshop via Zoom: Blind embossing with Josie Brown
February 13 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm£20
Josie is a calligrapher, heraldic artist and book maker and a CLAS Accredited Tutor with over 30 years of teaching experience. She likes to apply traditional skills and techniques in a contemporary way and is passionate about all things paper.
This workshop will introduce the skills and techniques required to enjoy the art of embossing, where lettering and patterns are raised up from the surface of the paper. We will begin by designing and cutting our own stencils, then learn how to use the tools to create smooth but crisp embossed designs, and finally consider how embossing might be used alongside calligraphy.
Participants can either work alongside Josie during the session or watch and listen and have a go later. There will be ample opportunity for questions.
The workshop will be recorded and the recording will be made available to the participants for 2 weeks afterwards at no extra cost so you will have ample time to practise the techniques at your own speed.
This is a Zoom workshop delivered in the comfort of your own home!
