Try your hand at creating greeting cards from the heart.

Try your hand at creating greeting cards from the heart. In this 90-minute interactive session, calligraphy artist Lynda Chandler will teach you the basic strokes of traditional calligraphy to create the alphabet. You’ll soon be able to use your new skills to pen heartfelt sentiments to your loved ones, whether it’s celebrating this fall’s holidays, get-well wishes or just a lovely card to say, “thank you for being a friend.” Lynda will also demonstrate some common holiday phrases to help you get a head-start on your season’s greetings. This traditional form of writing is not an elegant gift to give, but you’ll find the process of learning and practicing the strokes meditative and relaxing. Participants will receive take-home worksheets and a calligraphy pen for additional home practice.

This class is appropriate for both first-time students and those wishing to take their skills to the next level. Class size is limited to allow Lynda time to interact directly with individual students. If you’re unable to attend, please consider cancelling your reservation early to allow others the opportunity to attend this popular program.

This program is presented by Lynda Chandler and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
