Last saturday there was a Ladiesfair in Feanwaldsterwal (close to my home) where I gave a handlettering workshop. It was a big hit!
Despite the rainy weather a lot of Ladies came to the fair, and many of them joined the handlettering workshop.
I gave the workshop together with Bonnie from Hartenwijzer.nl, a Dutch children’s coach.
The picture below is made about a half our before the opening of the fair. You can see we are ready for the strom 🙂
Luckily the Ladiesfair was in a big tent, as the weathergods were having a bad day. On the table you can see examples and books we brought as inspriation.
During the workshop they could copy letters, they could practise brushlettering, they could make their own quote and the ladies could write white-pen-on-black-paper.
I think the best white pen on the market is the Uniball Signo. This pen has a beautiful white opaque ink.
For the “normal” black writing pens I use the Pigma Micron pens. These are available in different thicknesses and they do not bleed through the paper. Ideal.
Anyway, this ladiesfair was superfun and if there is another one, I will join again!
