February 4 - Letter Writing for Romantics

145.00

At Castle in the Air, we believe that the act of writing a letter is the creation of a work of art. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to turn your missives into art that will enchant its recipient. Inveterate letter writer Ben Yates will show examples of how to be creative when corresponding, and will teach you how to think of the process in terms of how your letter will be received. You will look at numerous examples of form, details, and creative ideas from which you can develop your own unique letters. Dip pen writing will be introduced, employing simple letterforms that can easily be adapted and personalized. Embellishments, hidden messages, and ways of preparing the ideal stationery setup will also be covered. You’ll leave class with a dip pen, ink to practice with, and a stick of Castle in the Air’s own mail-safe sealing wax.
