Spring Fling Mini-Workshops: Saturday, April 8


Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm
SVA Annex, 214 E. 21st Street, Rooms 701A/702A
$40 members/$50 non-members (includes materials & lunch)
Details here. Registration here.

Join us for the maiden voyage of what we hope will be an annual event – the Society’s SPRING FLING, a full day of mini-workshops and shopping at John Neal Books. Similar to San Francisco’s “Trivial Pursuits” program, the SoS is inaugurating our own version of this fun-filled day of learning from leading members of our organization.

On Saturday, April 8, 2017: four mini-workshops (about an hour long) will be offered and participants will attend each one: two in the morning, two in the afternoon. Before, after and in-between, there will be shopping at John Neal’s Pop-Up Shop in an adjacent room. Lunch will be an SoS-sponsored Pizza Party!

The mini-workshops will be led by:
Eleanor Winters, teaching pop-up greeting cards with calligraphy.
Marcy Robinson, teaching simple paper-marbling techniques using shaving cream! These papers make fabulous greeting cards, end-papers for books, or backgrounds for lettering.
Chavelli Tsui, teaching how to make an ingenious portable, attractive, handy pen nib holder. Once you make one, you will want to make many, many more!
Lynne Yun, teaching how to write in gradients and rainbow colors using balsa wood/foam brushes.
More about each mini-workshop and the day in general here.

This terrific day is bound to be one of the great bargains of Western Civilization, as the cost for all four sessions and lunch is only $40 members/$50 non-members! Be sure to join us so you can one day say “I was there when the Society of Scribes launched this fantastic event!” There is something in this for everyone, regardless of your level of expertise, so be sure to register quickly, as interest has been mounting and we expect it to sell out fast! Register here.

Volunteers & helpers needed! Please email us: info@societyofscribes.org
