ALTERED BOOK ART JOURNALLING WITH JANET GALLAGHER
Be guided by artist Janet Gallagher to begin your own Altered Book Art Journal.
This form of art journaling is an excellent way to explore a variety of mixed media, to experiment with ideas & to re-purpose unwanted old books as personal, richly creative journals. A selection of old books, collage & a diverse range of art materials will be provided for you to explore.
Please bring an old hard back book if you have one, (there will have plenty for you to choose from too). Bring any special bits you might like to use in your journal & an apron if you like! No art experience is necessary, only your willingness to explore!

An introduction to informal hand lettering with ink and a calligraphy brush. Students will learn some basic typographic principles before practicing different lettering styles and techniques based on their own handwriting; beginning with a series of short, simple exercises, participants will progress to designing and lettering some more finished pieces with an emphasis on developing their own lettering style.
An excellent starting-point for anyone interested in learning a more freeform method of hand lettering and adding some finesse to their everyday handwriting! A calligraphy brush and small jar of ink will be supplied to you on the day for you to take home.
