Calligraphy with Brenda Thelan

Calligraphy is an artistic writing style where pressure is varied to create thick and thin lines, all in a single stroke. Learn writing that is extravagant and embellished with flourishes. Your new skills are great for making an impression. Use it on invitations, greeting cards, scrapbooking, or creating a new stylistic signature!

All skill levels welcome in this hands-on class. Your instructor will provide various exercises and calligraphy techniques for individual needs. No registration required, come on the Saturdays you can!
