FINALLY I AM BLOGGING ABOUT THE MOST WONDERFUL 5 DAY CLASS IN BERKELEY EVER!
My internet has now been restored ( 14 days! no thanks to DSL Extreme thank you not so much) I was HONORED to be asked to teach for five glorious days in Berkeley for the Friends of Calligraphy. We lettered our heads off -morning scriptoriums of modern Romans no less -then Black letter-and then in the afternoons we painted and played and added fabric and collage and stitchery. I tell you-this class was amazing-Carla Tenret set it all up in the International House on the Berkeley campus so it ran so smoothly...every day we had fresh bakery thanks to the amazing Laura Bernabei.. Dorothy Yuki provided 3 sewing machines, irons and tons of designer fabric-so yummy.
My new friends, The artists created books from their creations and you have to go see them at my Flickr page-14 pages of em! Everyone of these artists contributed their talents and gifts...Thanks so much to David Winkler who housed and transported me-his house was so beautiful and neat! This was something a bit foreign to me-so I appreciated the calm and beauty of his place-I got out and ran a bit-the hills are ubiquitous!
Lily and Charles Stevenson treated me to dinner at His Lordships-right on the bay literally-the wind surfers not 20 feet away. Weather was perfect! Thanks so much too to Meredith Klein for everything and also to Elena for the ride at the crack of dawn!
Oh and there are still a few openings for Letterista style letters at the Art Supply warehouse this Saturday!
