Level: ALL LEVELS

By starting with small steps, designing a few leaves, drawing a straight line, a curved line, a few non-intimidating elements you can begin to master the mystery of illuminated borders. With just a little bit of math (no calculators needed), a layout tissue and a repeating pattern you can build glorious borders to offset your work. We'll vary in style from the simple to complex and build upon newfound knowledge to expand to more elaborate borders. And once planned, you'll have your tissue to use again and again.

We will tackle aspect of color, how to softly shade, how to add highlights and lowlights, how to shadow...all the elements that will make your border look professional and add to your lettering, not detract from it. In this class we will be working on 3 different borders using a simplified white vine technique and other methods. We will carry on his traditional of using rich tones. Each border will have gold, white gold, or moon gold.

This two day class is a fun, fast paced class that will send you spinning off with a head full of ideas and looking for projects to add a border to.  All levels welcome.
