Calfskin aka vellum is one of the most delightful surfaces for a calligrapher to letter on. It is commonly called parchment, a skin prepared for writing. Many medieval manuscripts survive today because of the durability of these skins. Calf, sheep, deer, goat (and others) are used for the making of broadsides and books. In this workshop, you will learn how to prepare, letter on, mount and frame CALFSKIN. Enjoy a hands-on experience that will prepare you for making your own long-lasting and unique calligraphic masterpieces. Handouts and digital presentation, included. 3-hr.
