Hello Fellow pen Pushers,
2016 maybe drawing to an end BUT, there’s no slowing down for many of us. By popular demand I am squeezing in a few exciting workshops so we can all end this wonderful year with a bang.
So here's a chance for you to unleash your creativity in a couple of fun workshops. You may have tried flourishing and are floundering a bit with the shapes and just getting into the rhythm and
flow with it. I've come up with an interesting way to get your muscle memory really happening. Recently I tried out my techniques at an RMIT Uni mini workshop. SUCCESS !! Yeah, the students had fun and all of them got it. The work was beautiful to see. Woo Hoo!! wonderful to see!! So now you too can learn to flourish the easy way through a series of simple strokes and shapes.
And as we are coming into the silly season and it'll be the time for giving, here's one answer for your card and gift ideas. I have an action packed day for you, whether you want to mass produce the cards to sell or make a one off original to give as a gift, you will find this workshop great fun and an education on many fronts. As well as having ready made designs to inspire you I will show you how to design your cards and how to set yourself up to make multiples of cards so you have them ready to go at any stage when you may need a card or special gift. Because lets face it your handmade cards are made with much love in mind. They are little works of art and are definitely a great addition to any gift, if not a gift in themselves.
A great way to end your year and fabulous inspiration for the year to come. Be there or be square!!
I have now taught for 18 months at RMIT University in their Calligraphy Course. As the saying goes "To teach is the learn twice". I have learned a lot myself about the art of lettering and about how to share my creative skills with others. Calligraphy is in a new and expanding place in the world today. Traditional skills are being used in new and very exciting ways and by a new group of young and excited lettering nerds. The RMIT course has been updated a little to meet the desires of a whole new market. I am going to expand on that even more in my own "Studio8" in Hampton. Listen & look & news will come to you.
