“Which paper should I choose?” is a question often asked by calligraphers. Karon Wheeless will lead us in looking at a variety of papers for use in practicing, layout, making a card or a book, or creating a finished piece to frame. Following an introduction to paper and a short demonstration of how to make your own recycled paper, each person will receive a packet of papers containing several different paper samples. We will discuss the papers as we write on them, testing which papers and writing fluids work well together.
* 3 or 4 of your favorite writing tools (nibs, pointed brush pens, calligraphy markers, parallel pens, etc.)
* inks, watercolors, or gouache, if you bring nibs
* white gel pen and/or white ink (to use on darker papers)
* water container and paper towels
