CALLIGRAPHY -MAR 9, 16, 23 & 30

Additional Information

Instructor Cate Crawford will demonstrate proper technique and introduce you to materials to make your learning journey a smooth one!   This class is perfect for beginners or even for those with a bit of experience who want to gain a strong foundation and approach to calligraphy.  Cate will work with each student individually. 


Focus will be on the Foundational Hand --which is also known as Roman Roundhand.  This beautiful hand was predominant in the 10th Century and is praised for its legibility in manuscripts as well as for being the most logical starting point to learn.  Students will use simple tools (starting with pencils) and work up to the broad-edged pen with ink.  We will also cover the use and care of equipment.  At the end of the class, all students will have a completed project to demonstrate their progress.


Cate is an accomplished calligrapher with over forty years of experience in calligraphy, graphic design and fine arts.  She has taught hundreds of students from beginning to advanced levels the art of calligraphy and was an instrumental force in the formation of the first calligraphy guilds in NC in the 1980s.  Her work has appeared in Letter Arts Review.  Cate has studied with many of the great calligraphers of the 20th C. and is extremely excited to bring this art form to Wyoming.  Her teachers include Sir Donald Jackson (UK), Peter Thornton (UK), Ann Hechle (UK), John Stevens (US), Thomas Ingmire (US), Sheila Waters (UK/US), and numerous others.


After earning her BFA magna cum laude at the University of North Carolina in 1977, Cate owned and operated a successful design studio for ten years in downtown Raleigh, NC, where she designed and created thousands of custom commemorative and commercial calligraphy projects.  Cate also worked in university, state government and private industry in the fields of illustration, publishing and design.  She has received national awards for her designs.

ALCOHOL-INK WORKSHOP - MAY 4th

Decorate Tiles Yourself - Just Bring Your Imagination!

 Suzie  Warner will reprise a class given last year to a visiting group.   Twenty-eight people attended and by all accounts thoroughly enjoyed the  class.  And, they produced some really nice tiles.  So now we are offering this as a class open to all.

After  you've finished painting a tile and it's dry, you spray it to with a  protective coating.  Outside of using the tiles in a shower or washing  them in a dishwasher (not recommended), the decorations should last for  years.  And this technique isn't limited to tiles.  Try it on porcelain  vases, etc,  They make great personalized gifts.

  • Saturday, May 4th from 9am to 1pm.
  • In the CCAL Classroom.
  • The cost for the class is  $45    
  • The cost includes all supplies.
  • Plan to bring a lunch.
