On the third Saturday of March 2020, we are excited to welcome calligraphy instructor and Colleagues member Pat Barrett, who will be teaching a hands-on program on Italic Minuscules. We heard your feedback on our recent surveys—and we are going back to the basics in March.

Go deeper in your knowledge of Italic, practice your form, or learn Italic for the first time. The instructor will focus on pen angles, letter slants, and the x-height of letters. She will also graciously provide a handout of Italic Majuscules calligraphy.

This is the perfect opportunity to start attending if you are new to the Colleagues of Calligraphy or returning. More details to come.

Before the presentation at 1:00pm, visit the Demo Corner beginning at 12:30pm, where Dawn Darner will be demonstrating Spencerian, with the pointed pen.

During this social time, those who attend are also invited visit the Colleagues Library table, and to bring calligraphy to “Show and Share.”

Light refreshments and coffee will be provided.
