We also had a calligraphy "huddle" doing Asian calligraphy. One of our members brought brushes she had purchased in China, another brought a nifty book of Chinese character outlines. He dipped his brush in water and wrote over the outlines, and when the water hit the paper, it turned black. When the black dried, it disappeared, and his book was ready for more practice. The things we learn at our meetings!
We also had a new member, Salley, join us. Salley teaches bookmaking classes and brought samples of some of the cards and books she has made. What a great addition to our other talented members. Welcome Salley!
