Peter Thornton Workshop
This past weekend I attended a workshop instructed by Peter Thornton, a Master Calligrapher, formerly from Lichfield, England. He is a Fellow of the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society based in London, England. He has taught all over the world, including Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, South Africa, and Europe.
The Triangle Calligraphers' Guild was fortunate to have him here in our midst, so we took full advantage of his generosity and talents!
The photo above shows my little workstation during the workshop. In it you will see two gilded little squares, two gessoed squares (before gilding), a gilded "P," my notes, and some tools used for gilding. If you will notice, you can see that there is a vacancy in the sheet of gold left by the P.
Come join our guild! We've lots to learn and to share!
More pics to follow!
