April 15: Fun with Walnut Ink

Karen suggested that I (Jennifer Redmer-Carroll) re-present my demo of using Walnut ink, so, please join us this Saturday, April 15 at 10 a.m. at the Bell Tower Arts Pavilion and we’ll have some fun.

Supply list:

  • 15-20 sheets of 4 inch by 4 inch Arches Text Wove
  • Water
  • Small brush 
  • Containers for the ink, 6-well pan or something with a lid to save for later
  • Your favorite nibs and holders

We will end up with a small swatch set similar to what you see in the photo.

All meetings are held at 10 a.m. on the lower level of the Bell Tower Arts Pavilion, 3270 Glendale Milford Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45241, unless otherwise noted.

A Drop of Ink
The Greater Cincinnati Calligraphers’ Guild celebrates more than Forty Years – 4 decades of calligraphic sharing – historically it is only a drop of ink! The first writing, recording an event, was the Stone Age cave drawing. Through the centuries, the written word the world over has been hard copy of the spoken word. Modern technology has waylaid calligraphy’s practical application. It is today’s Lettering Guilds that preserve this craft and further create it into an art form. Art is the result of the proper use of its tools – the perfect definition of calligraphy, which in Greek simply means “beautiful writing.”

Notes: This is open and encouraged for EVERY member of our Guild. We want to show all talents from beginner to professional. The will be NO jury to judge, but rather show development over time and practice. More details about the exhibit space to come.
