October Calligraphy Jam

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 :)
