Join multi-media artist Lisa Engelbrecht, author of Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering, at the home studio of Jenny Doh on Saturday, March 5, 2011 for a very special all-day class. Lisa will guide us with assorted writing instruments to explore and discover experimental lettering and mark-making. The letters and marks will be incorporated onto canvas, and combined with exciting mixed-media techniques to add special shimmer and sparkle by creating metallic hearts with duo adhesives, foils, double-stick tape, and metallic pens. Students will learn how to create mixed media art quilts and mixed media pendant necklace. For students who need support for any portion of the techniques, Lisa and Jenny will be on hand to provide support.

Lisa, would this be appropriate for a "beginner" letterer? I don't have a lettering style and I don't do any calligraphy, so I am worried that I'd be too far behind the rest of the class ??? And - just what is the class size limited to? Thanks so much!

Lisa, no need to reply, unless you want to reinforce my decision to go ahead and register for the workshop! Jenny told me how amazing you are, and so I signed up. If I am too much of a beginner, then heck, I'll get from the day what I'm meant to get from the day. :-) Looking forward to this! ~~ Davielle
