Heidi Lowe and Katy Compton Ackerman team up for a special two week class in calligraphy and jewelry making! Both artists have a special relationship to words. Where Katy uses words as her medium, Heidi uses words as a starting point for making jewelry.
In the first class, join Katy to learn the basics of pointed pen - modern calligraphy. You will learn how to use the traditional calligraphy tools, nibs and ink, which create the distinct thick and thin lines that form calligraphy. The workshop includes all supplies, an alphabet exemplar, a small project to take with you, and lots of information to continue learning at home!
The following week Heidi will teach you to transform your hand lettering into a silver pendant. You will learn the basic metalsmithing skills of sawing and piercing, filing, and polishing. Heidi will have all the tools and supplies needed to create a pendant you can wear home that night!
Class size is limited to 8 people to allow for plenty of one-on-one time with Katy and Heidi.
Katy is the owner of Lewes Lettering Co., and you can see more of her work on her website, lewesletteringco.com or her instagram, @lewesletteringco!
