CLAS Festival of Calligraphy 2010
This year the CLAS Festival of Calligraphy was held at Warwickshire College in Leamington Spa.The CLAS Festival of Calligraphy gives everyone a chance to indulge in calligraphy and lettering. World class tutors teach a variety of courses in lettering. This year’s tutors were Mary Noble, Manny Ling, Ian Garrett, Lin Kerr, Clare Whittaker and Vivien Lunniss. The workshops take place during two 2 1/2 day sessions with Monday afternoon free.We were delighted to be asked to attend Monday afternoon. As usual it is very hard to decide what Calligraphy equipment and materials to take to an event. We can’t take it all, and you guessed it we were asked for one type of nib, which we had left behind. Another dilemma we have is what quantities of stock to take. Thankfully we got this about right. We only sold out of three items and one of these we had limited stocks because the supplier is also out of stock.It was great meeting lots of keen calligraphers in a relaxed environment. You could tell the calligraphers were really enjoying the Festival, because every single one of them who wrote us a cheque for payment could not remember what the date was!
