Workshop via Zoom: Designing borders and patterns the easy way with Jan Mehigan
May 8, 2021 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£20
Jan is a renowned calligrapher and artist, with an interest in both traditional and contemporary calligraphy. She is a Fellow of both the SSI and CLAS and is a popular and knowledgeable tutor and demonstrator.
Enjoy learning the EASY way to design and create exciting and beautiful DECORATIVE BORDERS and MOTIFS using grids and tracing paper which can enrich your calligraphy, cards and pictures or be used to enhance your writing or just stand on their own. A template for the grids will be supplied in advance. Have fun creating vibrant modern decorative patterns and motifs, geometric and floral, using a pencil, a technical pen, coloured pencils or pens, or paint.
10am to 12 noon followed by a practice break and then resuming for a Q&A and “show and tell” from 3pm to 4pm
The morning session of 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. The afternoon session (which will NOT be recorded) will give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and make comments and to share the work they may have done in the break.
