Ellen Mott-Jablonski and Kati Searcy, Presenters
Calligraphers were invited to come and play, and that's exactly what we did on Saturday, May 12th. With the help, guidance, suggestions, demos and materials provided by Ellen Mott-Jablonski and Kati Searcy, participants drew marks, animals, the letterforms of the Neuland alphabet and letters from historical examples.
When ready to experiment/play further, balsa chips and cups of walnut ink were available for creating a different look for similar marks. The wonderful handouts helped to remind those in attendance of the possibilities when using a broad edged tool. In addition, attendees made an envelope portfolio, perfect for holding the cards on which one could continue the play with pens. Thanks to Kati and Ellen for an enjoyable meeting.
