This past Saturday I was a student in Rebecca Caridad’s very first Calligraphy Workshop in Boulder, CO. There were only 7 of us and we had a fun time learning the basics of Calligraphy. I’ve only practiced once since the class, due to my studio currently being re-done. Once I get it all in order, I plan to put my pen to paper and really get to know my style of writing. That’s the beauty of it – just because you learn something, doesn’t mean that you can’t bend, or even break, the rules. I’m pretty good at breaking rules… so, stay tuned for that. Until then, check out a few snapshots that Rebecca’s younger sister took of our workshop here.
I’ve put a hold on making anything this week, so that I can focus on getting my new studio all sorted out. I really have to have a clean, bright and inspiring place to create. Otherwise, I find it difficult to stay focused. Anyone else have this problem? Anyhoo, the most challenging part of the studio will be getting my 120-drawer Library Catalog, that my dad gave me, out of the garage and up the staircase. I dusted and cleaned it really well, so it’s ready to be moved in. Wish me luck!
