In this class students will be led through a series of exercises that will result in all sorts of creative ways to make letters. Using traditional as well as unusual tools, students will work on creating either a cohesive alphabet OR will do an alphabet with a different style for each letter.

We will then assemble a simple accordion-fold book and students may write their letters directly on the book paper, or paste in their letters. Their alphabets may be done in black and white, or in color.

Class fee includes all materials we use to make an alphabet book; Drawing paper, binders board, Japanese fabric, Italian cotton ribbon, Xacto-blade, bonefolder, scissors, ruler, triangle rulers. pen-holder, an assortment of calligraphy pen nibs, and a selection of unusual writing tools.

Our studio is light-filled, airy, and organized. You are welcome to browse our extensive library of books about bookbinding, calligraphy, and drawing. We look forward to sharing our love of paper, calligraphy, pen & ink with you in this three hour workshop!
