The talented and creative Lora demonstrates parallel pens and a special multi-color technique by doing beautiful bookmarks for one of the librarians.


















The multi-talented and treasure-trove-of-all-things-calligraphic, Corinna, taught about the history of writing and demonstrated various tools and writing surfaces that were used throughout the ages. A patron tries her hand at stone carving!


















The vivacious and very talented Karen demonstrates pointed brush and unusual tools using inks, bleach, and various other mediums to show patrons some funky lettering styles!
