POSTPONED: Try Your Hand – International Calligraphy Art Interaction
September 8, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Try Your Hand has been postponed until May 2019! Stay tuned for details.
Did you ever wish you could write in another language? Or have beautiful penmanship in your own? Here’s a chance to Try Your Hand at an international calligraphy event at Congress Square Park!
People from around the world will show you how to write in their native script, such as Cyrillic, Japanese, Arabic. You’ll also have a chance to try Medieval and Modern Latin alphabet calligraphy. You’ll learn a few words and perhaps a proverb from the different cultures and be able to make a keepsake pendant with your choice of two languages. Come out and do something different at Congress Square Park!
Supplies will be provided and instruction is free.
Thanks to Portland Downtown for your sponsorship of this event!
