Yellowpoint Retreat

For 29 years, Fairbank Calligraphy Society in Victoria, BC has been holding an annual retreat in March. This is always a well loved event and looked forward to by all who attend. This past weekend was no exception! There were about 60 or more in attendance to spend some time together, gain some pounds on the gourmet meals, get together with old friends and make some new ones, work on some calligraphy or other art projects and enjoy the shareshop on Saturday morning. This year it was lead by Trish Klus and we learned how to make a scroll book with a little leather journal inside the scroll. There were many steps but it was such good fun!

See where the little leather bound book goes...

We even covered the inside of the scroll!
I decided to write the instructions in the leather bound booklet.

This is the spectacular view from our cliff cabin window.

We had a bit of every weather imaginable this weekend, lovely sunshine, bit of rain, sNoW! and then back to sunshine.
Huge round of applause for Ginny and Joan for their wonderful organizing.

And now back to reality!
We have a meeting on the 14th of March and a workshop with Georgia Angelopoulos at the end of the month. See you there!
