We did it our way in August
Tom is demonstrating using lots of colours when writing by simply dipping your pen in a different pot of colour each time you refill it. Don't worry about wiping your pen between colours ... just go for it. The effects are shown in Helen Tulloh's work layout below.
This photo demonstrates Dominic's session on how to make a floragram out of someone's name. Quite difficult to do although we were shown how to make a circle with guidelines but some of us struggled to work out word lengths for the repeats. It is worth the effort though because floragrams are so striking and effective.
The picture above shows a scribe's watercolour pencil work using colour and repetition in Mike's making textures with calligraphy session.
