CALLIGRAPHY – AFTERNOON ADVANCED – MELBOURNE
MAYBELLE IMASA-STUKULS leads this class for calligraphers who are ready to take their penmanship to great heights.
There is no greater teacher than Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls to hold your hand through the gentle art of learning modern calligraphy. She is Martha Stewart's favourite pen (read all about her here and here) and considered a handwriting style expert with her modern, loose and unequivocally beautiful take on this traditional art form. For Maybelle, the heart of calligraphy is about finding beauty in imperfection and in learning through her distinctly modern approach you will have a renewed gratitude too.
Drawing inspiration from botanical engravings, vintage alphabet specimens, and her travels abroad, Maybelle has been known to journey to Paris for just the right calligraphy nib. What is the most wonderful discovery about Maybelle is that she is not just a top-end talent, she is gracious as well as gifted. Under her expert tuition you will rediscover the joy of the handwritten and celebrate the divinity of hand printed cards, letters and notes.
The 3 hour workshop is designed for those with previous calligraphy experience, the class covers letterform anatomy, writing techniques and practical applications including stationery, envelope and design. It's a class designed for those who have a writing practice. Maybelle has taught this class to thousands of students around the world and through her tuition you will learn so much more to add to your current practice.
