Summer Special – Capitals for Fun with Mary Noble Saturday 9th July

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOT AVAILABLE TO BOOK YET
THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE ONLINE

Suitable for all levels, this is a fun session creating our own versions of capitals, using pencils, pens, and cut paper. We will work alongside each other so we can all compare notes and share our discoveries. Mary will be selecting the best bits of ‘Capital Offences’ from the CLAS Festival so we can develop a block of unusual writing.

  • A4 paper, preferably cartridge but layout optional
