Great Couple of Days at the Christkindlmarket!

I had a great couple of days at the Christkindlemarket this weekend! It was quite cold, but we had lots of folks stopping by for the Calligraphy and Stone Inscription Carving demonstrations. I was able to personalize Art Legacy League Bookmarks by adding the person's name in Calligraphy. A great time was had by all!

Paul adding calligraphy names to ALL bookmarks for visitors!

Paul demonstrating cutting images and quotes in slate.

A Grand Time was had by all!!!!

We had a very enjoyable Brush Romans workshop for the 30th annual Letter Exchange Conference in Cambridge, England. The site was Eric Marland's lettercutting workshop, a deconsecrated Victorian chapel in the middle of a Cambridge cemetery containing memorials by Eric Gill, David Kindersley, Eric Marland, Tom Perkins, and many others. My thanks to for the hard work of Matt, Michelle, Jo, Jackie, Lara, Liz, Peter, and Heather who wielded the brush with the ease of a professional sign writer. It was a joy to work with them. I also presented the "Life and Times of Edward M. Catich" lecture at Anglia Ruskin University as part of the conference lecture series. I congratulate everyone who made the Letter Exchange conference a success.

The photos shared here were taken by John Neilson, Letter carver & lettering designer. John is also the editor of Forum, the journal of Letter Exchange.
