We were very fortunate to have Violet Smythe come to Sequim in early June to teach 2 classes. The first day was “Button Alphabet with Parallel Pen” and the second day was “Watercolor Techniques”. These classes were well attended and a lot of fun. Here are some pictures from those classes.
Kellie Moeller provided the program on Friday at our meeting. She covered 2 different topics: using Citrosolv to alter images from magazines or mailers that can be used as backgrounds for calligraphy and her brush lettering alphabet. We had an opportunity to try out the alphabet and use it to create postcards for seniors. It was a very fun meeting.
Lorraine Douglas held a very fun 2 day class called “Slash – Letters Under the Knife” in January. Those in attendance all created a wonderful book as their project made from watercolor paper of their design. Following are some pictures from that class.
