A letter is the most generous gift you can give. Within the gift of a letter is a moment to pause and exist within the space and connection between letter-writer and recipient.
The class will focus on writing beautiful letters. We will: hand-make envelopes from everyday supplies; artfully address an envelope with calligraphic typography; focus on raw, beautiful materials; learn the art of storytelling in letter-writing; read ancient letters for inspiration; unleash authentic language in letters; discover how to extract inspiration for artists and writers in the after-thought of letter-writing; implement systems to find time to write letters in today’s busy world.
Each student will leave with very beautiful supplies, but more importantly, students will leave with a refreshed or new deeply-felt sense of connection. No prerequisites, all levels are welcome. At its core, this class is about connection.
