THE ENCHANTED LETTER with
Enchanted Letters are rooted in Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, but have a distinct Victorian flair. These flourished script letters are embellished with florals and foliate accents and can be combined with calligraphic script lettering. The designs are based on my work in offhand flourishing, floral design and Victorian needlework. I hope you become Enchanted with these graceful letters.

ADVENTURES WITH THE FOLDED PEN – HOW DOES SHE DO THAT
with VIOLET SMYTHE
In February we had an introduction to the folded pen with Kerri Forster. Violet has a large selection of folded pens and she has done much experimenting and playing with them. At the September meeting, come and see them in person and see the many varied markings they can create. Doors open at 7pm, and the meeting starts at 7:30 pm. Since we are still dealing with Covid, and are approaching the “flu” season, our executive has decided to require masks at our in-person meeting.
Summer Solstice (the day before), June 22nd Birthdays for Pat Chell, Anne Seymour and Rose Wong and Meeting in Person once more, are all reasons to celebrate! We’ll be providing cake and punch to add to the festive mood.
Bring your exhibition piece(s) for all to admire.
