15th June – 10 – 4pm ‘Batard’

tutor Jan Mehigan

Enjoy writing in cursive BATARDE hand, an elegant French script of the 15th century that evolved from the Gothic scripts. It is a lively and more dancing hand than the rigid Gothic, with pen angle changes which are fun to do. We will modernise and develop it further if we have time. Consider some prose in French, with English translation, to perhaps make it more interesting!

It is a day to enjoy!

Ben Shahn was a Lithuanian born American. He is very well known for his social protest artwork & typography but also for his quirky lettering.

His style of versals are very flexible and open up various ways to interpret them. Not known for their accuracy they are very achievable and fun to do.

Curiosity Cards for Christmas and beyond!

In this workshop we’ll be exploring our slightly more adventurous side and be creating cards that absolutely have the Wow! factor.

We’ll look at how to make, Never-ending cards, Waterfall cards, Pull up cards and if time permits Twist and Pop-up cards.

The aim of the day is for you to have made 1 master version of each type of card which you can take away with you and use as your template to make others. Who knows, if time is kind to us we might also get the chance to plan our decorations and even fling a little glitter around ?

So dig out your double sided tape, get your crafting face on and come and have some fun.

14th December – 10 – 2pm Study Day

with Christmas get together.
