Explore the Art of the Book in Classes at Historic Huntley

the Art of the bookIn honor of Huntley residents who loved both books and art, Historic Huntley is offering three classes this winter that delve into different aspects of book making.

The series kicks off on Sunday, January 28, 2018, with a class on calligraphy. Explore the art of beautiful writing with a variety of pens and brushes from 1 to 2 p.m. Calligrapher Mary Teichman calls calligraphy “a great antidote to modern life.”

In February, the focus is on the paper used in book making. This session runs from noon to 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 11. The series wraps up on Saturday, March 17, with a session on book bindings from 10 to 11 a.m.

Each session costs $7 per person. Register for one, two or all three.
