Get to know all the tips and tricks of fountain pens with this intensive, hands on class. You will get your very own brand-new fountain pen and leave this class completely confident on how to use and fill your inky friend. Kathy and Donovan will walk you through the anatomy of this writing utensil in order to demystify and customize your writing experience. We will teach you about the different pen styles, tricks to refilling, ink options, and taking care of your nib. The class will end with individualized consultation on a pen recommendation for your needs. Feel free to bring in your own fountain pen if you have one that is troublesome. All skill levels welcomed; dress with the expectation to get inky.

Ticket price & RSVP information coming soon.

Join Donovan & Kathy at the LWA Clubhouse for an afternoon of carving your own rubber stamps. She'll explain the process and walk you through the steps of creating a stamp to use in decorating your mail. All materials will be provided and each person will take home a zine by artist Carroll Woods as well.

As we will be working with carving implements, this workshop is suitable for adults only.

This is an L.W.A. Laboratory focused on some more advanced techniques to employ in your correspondence. We'll cover the use of printed tissue and textured papers, how to send small items in clear boxes, and other surprising ways to use layering of uncommon materials in your correspondence. This is not a beginner's class. You should be comfortable with basic mail art techniques before attempting these more adventuresome envelopes.

Write some letters with Kathy & Donovan of Letter Writers Alliance. Listen to us nerd out on mail, enjoy the silence as we scribble letters, and ask us mail questions. This will be a great time to catch-up on your "respond to" pile. We will be writing letters and answering any questions you ask on Twitter, so come and join us for an evening of mail. Make sure to tag your questions or mail photos with #LWASocial .
