    Ink & Quill Calligraphy

    taught by Kendra Schieber


    Session 1: First, you will learn how to prepare walnut ink from the husks of local black walnuts. The black walnut tree (Juglans nigra) is one of North America’s most valuable and beautiful native trees. We will then learn how to temper and cut a turkey’s wing feather into a fine writing tool that can be used with the velvety-smooth walnut ink to create calligraphy (beautiful writing!).


    Session 2: We will use a chisel-shaped felt pen and learn two letter styles - Gothic, or blackletter, and the Foundational Hand, also using our black walnut ink. Other materials and uses will be demonstrated as well.

    All materials and tools will be provided for the class.
