December 7th Penabler Meeting Details: “For the Table”

Higha Penablers!

First off – Happy Thanksgiving!  While you’re enjoying time with family and friends, fill your head with lots of calligraphic table ideas and bring them to our next meeting, For the Table: Friday, December 7th, 2012 from 6-8PM at the Binders Art School in Buckhead.

“For The Table” Demonstration and guided activity by Anne Elser. Make your holiday party table sing with calligraphic flare! Originally demonstrated by Carol Gray (thank you Carol!) at the Artfolio Penabler table last month, Anne will share some additional tricks that make a table or place card really POP off the table. Intricate and simple cuts and windows can enhance the dimensionality of folded paper and you’ll be surprised at how sculptural your letterforms of ANY hand and flourishes can become.

What to Bring: 

A snack or drink to share • Ruler • Pencil • Bone folder or scorer • X-acto knife with new blade • Cutting Mat • Tape • Calligraphy supplies • Cover Weight Paper • Yo Bad Self
