Intention Plaques & Sticks
with Lisa Engelbrecht

1-Day Workshop on Saturday, January 14, 2012
in Studio CRESCENDOh

Join Lettering Artist Lisa Engelbrecht to create gorgeous lettered wooden plaques and lettered sticks. You might just need one word to get you started with the process of lettering onto wood ... like begin, create, dream ... or maybe you might need to a reminder of the artist you are ... maybe outlaw, provocateur, renegade, or rebel. In this class, where everyone can be a calligrapher, Lisa will teach you an easy beautiful free and loopy script which can be written with a pointed brush or a pointed pen. Using wood plaques and found sticks and twigs, we prime and color with gesso and acrylics. Students will write their words of intention and then create a unique wire hanger for the plaques or wrap the sticks with colorful fibers. Twine and ribbon wrappings may be included. To finish off the words, colored pencil scribbles will give bright fillings to the spaces in between the letters. Lively discussion of our current state of creativity will inspire us to make a several in one day!
