This workshop will be on Zoom. For those who live locally, we thought it would be great to have the option to meet together and spread out on paper-covered tables, watching the class together. As soon as a room is obtained, we will announce that. 


$10 - this low cost is a gift to our members

We're aiming to have more of an in-person presence, in addition to maintaining our robust online schedule. Locals are welcome to join us  at the San Dimas Library to spread out with our project and enjoy each other's company as we watch the lesson together. We'll have a sewing machine, a few stencils, and some spare paints to share.  

San Dimas Library, 145 N Walnut Ave San Dimas, CA 91773

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:  Sending and receiving a creative hand made, professional and original greeting card is a treasure. In this workshop we will explore several different compositions, layouts and designs for your greeting card collection. We will create our own envelopes for our cards. Using a few different techniques, we will be using our gelli plate for creating the basis and fodder for the cards and envelopes. We will review a variety of different card styles and layouts while keeping the process simple and classic.

Please note: a Gelli Plate, 8x10 or larger, will be needed for this workshop. 

Recording will be available for two months. 

ABOUT VERONICA: I began my Calligraphy journey in the late 80's.  I was fortunate to study with Reggie Ezell year long class program and then three semesters with Tim Botts.  My true love has always been Roman Letters.  Studying with Peter Thornton has given me the discipline and creative permission to explore this art form for many years.

In addition to Calligraphy, I do enjoy bookbinding and all sorts of mixed media play.  I am now retired and able to enjoy the time and freedom it offers. I live in the Arizona desert and am a member of The Calligraphic Society of Arizona.
