Ann Hechle is offering two Study Days at her home in Bath during 2017. Download the flyers and contact Ann to express interest.
1. Irene Wellington Study Day
with Ann Hechle at her home in Bath. Limit 6 people.
Ann will give a short introduction to Irene Wellington: her work, her contribution to calligraphy, and her gifts as a teacher. Ann says : I was lucky enough to catch the last 2 years of her teaching at the Central School – 1958-9. I will bring a large student piece that I did at that time, which she designed. Then we will all look at the work laid out for us. It is such a rare privilege to see “the real thing” of such outstanding quality. Some pieces are very small, some collages; some on vellum, some paper. ! After lunch I will give about an hour’s talk and demo on design, & what I think I learnt from Irene. And I will be showing some pages from the book of mine‘Figures of Speech’

2. Design Study Day
This will be based around her manuscript book “Figures of Speech”.
The day will be spent looking at and studying my manuscript book “Figures of Speech : a Book of Geometry and Design” (which includes writings, drawings, maths, symbols – now 72 pages long) and discussing some ideas that arise from it: for instance layout, text areas, tonal qualities of text; and different ways to achieve harmony and contrast, balance and dynamics through colour, scale and design. Explanatory teaching aids prepared earlier will be used.
