New Workshop this Fall of 2011: Holiday Cards & Envelopes

Hallo friends,

I've completed the planning of two new Holiday workshops at Binders Art Supply in Atlanta I'll be teaching this Fall. One's for the Bookbinding crowd, the other for Inkers (Calligraphers.) Signup on line will be available soon (you'll see a link to it here on my site) or you can contact Eli Pelizza ( at Binders to sign up over the phone or by mailing a check.

Calligraphy Workshop With Anne Elser: Holiday Cards & Envelopes Saturday/Sunday Nov 19-20th|11:00AM-4:30PM|Sale price for early enrollment: $190, Regular Price: $205|Min. 3/Max.7

Create your own calligraphic design for whichever holiday you wish to share most. Students will be given customized instruction on layout and technique using the materials they bring to class. We will be writing, flourishing, painting, stenciling, cutting windows, stamping and more! Learn to create your own cards that are easy to reproduce at home by creating a template and adding layers of detail to the card in an enjoyable and systematic fashion. Emphasis will be placed on enhancing the meaning of your message in order to fully engage your audience. Day two is spent finalizing the prototype of your chosen design and with it, a system of producing it. We will also create a perfect envelope template for your card.

• Set of at least 20 blank cards and envelopes you wish to practice on.
