The Illuminated Letter

May 20, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


The Ancient Art Form of Decorated Letters

Saturday, May 20th, 10am – 3pm, Korch Home,  $100

Taking a letter and decorating it with beautiful design is an ancient art form dating back as early as 1310 BC with Egypt’s Book of the Dead. Last year I attended a workshop with this same theme (see picture) and enjoyed it so much I decided to offer it to you as well.  Come spend the day and “illuminate” your own chosen letter.  You’ll be walked through each step of the the way.  And did I mention gold leaf?  Oh YEAH!

Perhaps you’d like to create a one of a kind gift for someone special or you’d enjoy having a framed design on your OWN desk.  These small jewell-box designs will be on 4 x 6″ hot pressed Watercolor paper – and perfectly sized for a miniature elegant frame.  An assortment of mediums will be provided for you to use, and a light lunch will be served mid day to keep us all energized.  All you need to do is bring a small brush for the detail work. Your $25 deposit will hold your place for this first ever offered class.
