Valley Calligraphy Guild GENERAL MEETING - 7 PM
Program - Talk by Peter Thornton "Layout and Design" plus Folder Ruling Pen demonstration

This evening presentation will be a personal method of working on an actual project. Peter will be given, on the evening, a quotation, or a gestural line/mark or a word and then he describes the many options, choices, pitfalls, problems and decisions that occur throughout the layout and design of a small piece of calligraphic work. A feature of the evening will be a demonstration of the Folded Ruling Pen and the wide range of possibilities and 'flavours' available in this relatively new writing tool". Those attending may want to bring a note pad and pencil ......... but no pictures or recording devices during please.
