Are you a lover of words, a collector of words or a poet? In this class students will explore ways to write words by learning some informal calligraphy and mark making, and then creating several handmade book structures in which to save the words. Each class will present a new aspect of lettering using a variety of tools, and a bookmaking project. There will be time for practice and questions. Students will then select the words and format to work towards a final project.
