About the program: SfC member,  Jane Matsumoto, will lead us through a fun program where we'll create a place to store our nibs or to give a gift of nibs! The tri-fold holder with an accordion style center which allows the sections holding the slots for the nibs, to fold out for easy access. Start saving corrugated cardboard, either from packaging or boxes! You will need a small sheet to make one of these nifty nib holders.

About Jane: Jane is a calligrapher, lettering and watercoloring artist from the Bay Area. She was born and raised in San Francisco and moved to San Jose 22 years ago. She has worked in the education of young children for the past 19 years. Jane is passionate about sharing her knowledge, love, and joy for the calligraphic arts.
