I attended (online) a wonderful workshop presented by Massimo Polello. It was called Break the Pattern. We made books from our patterns. My first book is very traditional.
The second book is trying to break the pattern. I made the covers longer by accident but I think that I like it.
Celebration Community are the lovely people in Queanbeyan supporting my son. This is for them. It is a long time since I have done any gilding but it worked out just fine. The letter C is based on Folio 29 of the Grey FitzPayn Hours. The FitzPayn Hours is an illuminated book of hours produced in the English Midlands around 1300 to 1308.
Also during this year a workshop on Fabonacci was held by Gemma Black. What a great workshop. I made this card for my husband's birthday.
I have been interested in map illustrations for some time. This time I incorporated a gift voucher for my son-in-law for his birthday. Lots of fun.
Also during this year I did a wonderful workshop with Marina Soria. This time it was Empty Space Womb of Shape. This was a challenging workshop that I will go back to time and time again.
and this one built upon the idea of quilting.
Another project from 2020. A book featuring the Neuland script first learnt from Olive Bull. I had grand ideas of featuring different scripts learnt from different calligraphers. The second is a book from the workshop of Georgia Angelopoulos which I have yet to finish.
Also during the pandemic lockdown I sewed, seemingly non stop. This quilt has to have a backing. It did help to keep me sane during that time.
Back at the start of the Covid 19 pandemic the Canberra Calligraphy Society encouraged calligraphers to share their knowledge and expertise. Jenni Cole did a brilliant effort even to inventing a new type of weathergram just for Australia - Eucygrams! It was also at the time of the Black Lives Matter demonstrations around the world so I felt the need to incorporate my feelings even though the verse does not adhere strictly to weathergrams.
