SAVE THE DATE!  We'll open registration as we get closer 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Seeing your calligraphy in a circle is an exciting design component. During this three-hour workshop, we will practice lettering on a curve and how to calculate, draw and letter a full circle of text. I'd recommend focusing on just one lettering style and applying the techniques to that one lettering style. Digital handouts will be provided prior to class.
