Hand Lettering Workshop
Whether you are a person who mourns the loss of beautiful penmanship or you are a person who has only used a keyboard and looks at cursive writing like it is a foreign language, join us at the Woodbridge Main Library on October 3 at 6 PM this three-hour workshop will introduce you to the basics of beautiful hand lettering.
**Space is limited! This program is for adults (ages 18+)**
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-lettering 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.
This project is supported by funds from LibraryLinkNJ as part of the Level Up Your Library mini-grant program. LibraryLinkNJ and its services are funded by the New Jersey State Library.
