For our May meeting we welcomed Marise Hewitson and Mari Topping from North York Calligraphers, who were demonstrating backgrounds for calligraphy, mainly marbelling techniques. Scribes waited no time in donning natty aprons and gloves in order to get stuck into the reasonably messy business of creating beautiful patterns with the inks and materials that Marise and Mari had bought with them.
A further element to the demonstration was about making and lining envelopes, using some of the patterns we had created and from the many handy templates which the two 'M's had provided. A great time was had by all and we will undoubtedly see the evidence in due course, not only in our summer exhibition, but surely also expressed in our Christmas Cards?!
