Circles. . . no beginning - no end. . . looking around us we can see circular designs everywhere. As lettering artists they also provide a way for us to step away from the 'straight base line' and create something different - something fresh!
In this workshop we will look at circles differently and how to incorporate circles into our lettering designs and lettering into our circle designs. We will stretch, pull and push the boundaries of what we think is possible in order to create something that is unique!
'Free Writing' will be addressed and encouraged - Suzie will walk you through her process and explain why she often uses this form of writing.
There will be many samples of ideas for you to enjoy and be inspired by.
Circles, like the soul, are never-ending and turn round and round without a stop. - Ralph Waldo-Emerson
