Many of us have been fortunate to attend workshops given by Jan and her book Decorated Lettering has introduced her to a lot more people.  So it wasn’t too surprising that we had a full house when she came to talk to SLLA.

Jan had wanted to be an artist since childhood and went on to train as a graphic designer and illustrator.  She then went on to do a teacher training course, married and travelled widely with her husband before finally becoming a calligrapher.  She gave us a highly entertaining and informative talk about her life and career and kindly shared some helpful tips on methods she uses in her calligraphy.  The evening was a great success and enjoyed by everyone present.


Gail Mitcell’s full report of this workshop will be included in our next edition of The Inc., a quarterly newsletter for SLLA members. If you’d like to find out more and join the SLLA, please visit our Become a Member web page.
