Scriptorium in TN

Our “secret society” gathers next weekend at Carson-Newman college to become an active scriptorium à la Saint John’s Bible calligraphers and illuminators. What an invigorating and challenging series of workshops this is!

About Carol

A professional calligrapher for 30 years, I have hand written calligraphy in every size from business card to banners, including a full size reproduction of the U.S. Constitution. I specialize in Copperplate and elegant calligraphy for celebrations and parties. I stumbled into this art when my professor at Washington University told me "You could make money lettering." This was quite a surprise, as I had not seen any specific use of my talents beyond teaching children. As a result of designing my wedding stationery clients magically appeared. Balancing a family of four children and two big dogs with Bruce, my artistic time and available energy have varied considerably thru the years. Now I am happy to report that calligraphy is at the top of my activity list.
