Writing Small Alphabets and Creating Small Treasures

Mondays, March 30 - April 27
5 – 8 pm

CANCELED: Make your writing small, smaller, smallest as we work with various tools conducive to tiny writing. Three styles of lettering will be learned in this five week class: Monoline Italic, Clothesline Caps, and Willow by Hand, all of which can all be written in a variety of sizes. These delightful letters will be used to create books, boxes, and greeting cards utilizing a variety of materials.
