Nicole Poole
Calligraphy & Hand Lettering: Drawn & Quartered

2nd THURSDAY DEMO    Feburary 9, 11 am
Doors open at 10am. Demo at 11am
Buffet Lunch at 12:15pm

In this demo Nicole Poole will show a variety of calligraphic lettering made with different nibs and explain the basic fundamentals of lettering and how an alphabet behaves. She will dissect an alphabet and simplify the strokes, drawing them out and explaining how this dissection can be replicated in many lettering styles, to understand any alphabet the world over. By simplifying letters into a few basic repeating strokes, an entire alphabet becomes accessible to the aspiring calligrapher.

She is an awarded California Arts Scholar who enjoys studying, teaching and showing her work in the Northwest and along the Pacific Coast.
