CALLIGRAPHY AS A SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE
There will be a $5.00 – $10.00 supply fee.
Speedball Textbook (reference for lettering styles, I will have one handout with a few styles)
Pigma Micron Pens Pencil – HB lead Mars Staedtler eraser – or another favourite
Tracing Paper for sketching (or bond paper) –
Paper…My fav is Clearprint D’Arches HP or CP 90 or 140lb – cut 4 in manageable sizes 11×11
Watercolours – I prefer WN, but you may bring what you have. Pan or tube colours are fine. Bring at least 3+ colours and a metallic, plus Chinese white for mixing. OR Watercolour Pencils. Gouache is acceptable, but is harder to layer.
Brushes – I prefer WN Series #7, but you can bring similar small brushes (or synthetic) We will be working within an 11×11 size page, so designs will be on the smaller side, so judge your brushes accordingly.
Lettering Pens – I prefer Mitchell pens (all nib sizes) but bring the brand that you have.
Water Pot, Paint rag – for cleaning pens
Ruler for drawing lines
Saral Paper – flat sheets or roll, for transferring designs. Alternative: Portable light box for tracing – only if you have it already (optional)
Optional: Scraps of coloured and/or unique papers to use as collage in your designs.
Gel Pens for a little bling.
A few favourite coloured pastels, etc. In other words, materials/tools that you would like to work with as we create.
Bring 3+ meaningful verses, quotes that speak to your heart and/or encourage others.
For Portfolio: 1 sheet black or off-white Canson paper, bone folder (we can share)
