Workshop details - NEW DATE!
JUNE 27, 2020 10:00am - 12:00pm
Join us for an introductory workshop on Monograms. In this workshop you will learn the rules of classic and modern monogram layout and design. We will study a few examples to highlight some of the design elements that go into different styles and then we will sketch a few designs to put what we learned into practice.
You only need a pencil and paper to follow along. A piece of tracing paper along with an empty ball point pen or a rollerball will help for transfering designs but are not required.
