June Calligraphy Jam

Date: June 18, 2022

Time: 10am - 12pm

Location: Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library in Zionsville. (Click Here For A Map)

Topic:

Calligraphy Jam is an informal gathering where we practice or work on something of personal interest or a particular hand the guild may be emphasizing.  For the next few months we will be providing materials for Romans- for April it will be Roman monoline.  We will have some supplies in the room at the library but feel free to bring your own supplies also either for your own use or to share. If you want to practice monoline, you could bring a variety of pencils, monoline pens or markers along with colored pencils.

For those who are new, we meet at the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library (https://hmmpl.org/) in Zionsville the third Saturday of every-other-month from 10 am to around noon.  We will once more be meeting on the lower level of the library in a private room nested within the children's section: It is called the Laura Hussey Room. Visitors are encouraged to join us :)

July General Members Meeting

Date: July 9, 2022 (Note this not our usual Saturday)

Time: 10am - 1pm

Location: Laura Villanyi's house

Topic: Paste Paper. 

 

Registration is Required.  We have room for 25 people.  Click here to register.

  • Supplies:

    •  Sack lunch, including drink.  (first things first!)  Optional: snacks to share

    • Any kind and size of paper that holds up to water will work, I have been most successful with Arches Text Wove.  After you register, Kathy Laporte will put in an order to Dolphin. Be sure to let Kathy know if you would like her to order for you.  Suggestion:  1 sheet, 26" x 40" cut into 4 pieces will give you a nice size.  Perhaps you would like to order 2 sheets and cut them to make 8 pieces.  Each 26" x 40” is about $5.45.

    • CGI and Laura will furnish:  table coverings, paste, some acrylic paint, and a ton of other things.

    • You will bring:  apron, a spray bottle to spray your paper with water before you add pigment, containers for paste (yogurt cup size), 2-5 colors of liquid acrylic paint (cheap works), stirrers for paint and paste, sponges for applying paste and paint to the paper, tools that make marks (combs, credit cards, stiff brushes, etc.), scissors or metal ruler for cutting paper. There may be other suggestions later.

    •  Try to watch some YouTube videos about paste paper.  There is a lot of info available.

    • The guild will furnish Elmer's Art Paste; however, there are a lot of other paste recipes that you may want to try.  If so, bring them.
