Single members of the Local Congregation of Downtown, Alberta in the Ecclesiastical District of Calgary, Canada participated in the “KADIWA Café Socializing: Calligraphy Workshop” on January 22, 2022.
Dyan Paderes, also a KADIWA member, and a calligraphy enthusiast, was the guest speaker in the learning workshop seminar which was held online.
“Calligraphy can be good for one’s mental health. Age is not a factor to be considered to make this a hobby. This can also be a good way to save money instead of buying greeting cards. Taking a personal approach with style is much better when writing letters to our friends and loved ones,” she said.
Paderes introduced the different kinds of pens for various strokes in lettering like dip pen, parallel pen, brush, brush pens with Tombow Dual tip and Zig clean colors, including the common watercolors. She also showed the different papers to use in lettering. She also discussed faux calligraphy.
After brief discussions, the attendees applied what they learned, drawing letters, words, and phrases in calligraphy.
The online activity gave the KADIWA members a chance to explore a new hobby. Participants, including the speaker, expressed their thankfulness to the Church Administration for the activity. — With reports from INC News Section
