Society for Calligraphy, Southern California

Letter Writers' Social


Saturday, February 8

9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Marsha and Kristi will lead the group through a social event, where we’ll share tips and will write a letter(s), then decorate envelopes using two different techniques: collaged napkins and layered pastels. For those who aren’t confident with their letter- ing, Kristi will be on hand to help write names on the envelopes. Our aim will be to leave the workshop, with at least one piece of mail ready to drop at the post office and several pretty enve- lopes to motivate us to send even more mail!
