Watercolour for Calligraphers: A Colourful Partnership with Lorna Mulligan (Part 1)

In this two-part workshop, we will discover the magic that is watercolour. On the first Sunday we will work on basic exercises in colour mixing, water-to-paint ratios, simple washes, glazing and brush manipulation. We will begin the second Sunday with an overview discussion of this material. For the rest of the day, emphasis will be on developing an imaginative, individual approach to help us seamlessly combine watercolour with our calligraphy. 

Members: $200
Non members: $300
