TCG 2-day Workshop Weekend:
November 5th and 6th, 2016

Modern Storybook Script:
This playful alphabet has FUN written all over it! This charming, casual, easy script gives a fresh, modern twist to the traditional alphabet. In this two-day workshop by Kathy Milici, you’ll first learn some of the tools of calligraphy and how to use them. Then you’ll learn a series of simple strokes that form this whimsical yet elegant alphabet; first lower case letters, then upper case capitals. We’ll also examine letter endings, connectors, ligatures, numbers and punctuation. Strokes into letters, letters to words, words to sentences…and voila! You have a brand new, useful and versatile alphabet style that is so easy to make uniquely your own!
