DIY Valentines: A Maker Event
Calligraphy evolved into a fine art practice in the mid-20th century, and it continues to be reimagined by artists today. To keep the art of beautiful lettering alive, it must be practiced.
Join us and the Chicago Calligraphy Collective for an interactive and family-friendly event focused on expressions of love and care. Enjoy demonstrations of different forms of lettering and related arts – origami, paper embossing, gilding, and more – and try your hand at making your own Valentine projects. This event is open to writers and makers of all ages.
Take in this open-house-style event at your own pace, and enjoy free hot chocolate, coffee, and treats as you circulate.
