Registration is required! Please register here or by calling 732-634-4450.
Terry Antoniewicz, a calligrapher and creator of documents for royalty, governments, religious groups and movie sets globally, will present this workshop step-by-step, from how to make your basic writing strokes consistent with a wide-tipped marker, to the simple magic of connecting the strokes and designing words. The finishing steps of the presentation will assist each participant in designing a beautiful signature, complete with the fancy flourishes that make even a simple design look stunning.
Whether you want to learn some basics to improve your handwriting or explore more of your creative side for scrapbooking, making handmade cards or even hand letter your wedding invitations, investing three hours of your time can introduce you to a wonderful world of beautiful lettering.
Paper, worksheets, letter samples and a black calligraphy marker will be provided to the workshop participants. You are free to bring along your own color pencils, color markers, brush markers, etc.
Terry has been a professional and very contagiously passionate calligrapher, educator and program presenter internationally for over 50 years with studios in Chicago, the greater NYC area and Toronto. While handwriting/penmanship does not get the attention it has in the past, it still has a special need and place in all our lives.
