Writing on Circles and Curves

  • Zoom - online


  • Current paid (or honorary) member of SfC

Presenter: Debby Reelitz

    Sponsored by our San Diego Chapter

Sunday, Sept 11, 1-4PM PST

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.
Workshop will be recorded.
