Presenter: Marjorie Grace-Sayers
Sponsored by your Inland Empire chapter
Free outreach program. Saturday October 28, 2023 9-noon
About the program: Have fun making different styles of cards and envelopes. You'll learn new structures, as well as tips and tricks for scoring, folding, cutting, glueing, etc. Some of these will use recycled materials.
- We'll start with a basic folded card and proceed to trifold and beyond.
- Then we'll make a one-page zine, a folder with pockets, a tag card, and a gift card holder.
- Finally, we'll make several styles of envelopes.
For all levels. This should be fun and we're confident that you'll find a way to incorporate your calligraphy!
Program will be recorded and available for two months.
