Raw umber and yellow ochre are also good neutrals, (or bring what you have) Note- I recommend heavy body acrylics rather than Liquitex basics, which are too thin.

Canvas panels and at least one prestretched canvas, at least 11x14 inches

Hand Lettering – Italic Calligraphy
Supplies will be provided for the first class and I will review the supply list at that time. However, please feel free to bring any calligraphy materials that you already have that you like to use.
Suggested supplies…these are things I like and use…there are many others that will work as well…
Pen nibs - Speedball C1, C2, C3 and Mitchell 2½, 3, 3½
Nib holder - your choice of Speedball plastic OR double-ended nib holder
→ note of caution on hand-turned wooden holders - they are beautiful to look at BUT need to be selected in person to avoid ones that are too long or too heavy, too skinny or too fat
Ruler - an 18-inch clear plastic such as a C-thru or Westcott is nice, or any other ruler that is 18-inches or longer
T-square - optional…this is very useful if you have or decide to purchase a drawing board with a metal straight edge. I recommend an acrylic edged T-square rather than metal, as there is less chance of getting marks on the paper from the metal
Mechanical pencil - thin lead is preferred over thick (0.05)
Ink - Higgins Eternal OR Pelikan 4001. Please avoid acrylic inks for now…I prefer that you start with BLACK ink
Paper - your choice of:
→ Borden & Riley #37 Boris marker paper in 11x14 or 14x17
→ John Neal Books Practice paper without gridlines
Other useful supplies - a writing surface…nice to have something smooth to do your work on such as a piece of foam board larger than your paper; a rag or paper towels to clean your nibs; a water container; removable scotch tape (in the blue package)
Suppliers - both of these suppliers will be posting my class supply lists on their website

            3 all-purpose felting needles, size 38 star or 38 triangle
            8 oz Living Felt CW-1 Core wool

Trader Joe’s is a great source for Olive Oil soap and sponges
The Dollar Store is a good place to purchase bubble wrap
A hardware store is where to find window screening and pipe insulation
Living Felt (online) is an excellent resource for foam, needles and fiber. They are located in Austin, Texas, but they have everything you’ll need and they ship quickly.

Other sources for fiber:
            Iron Horse in Natick, MA
            The Fiber Loft in Harvard, MA
            Halcyon Yarn in Bath, ME
            New England Felting Supply in Easthampton, MA
When purchasing fiber, make sure you are getting fiber that is good for both wet-felting and needle-felting. Ask the shopkeeper.
Please bring your dry felting supplies to the first class. That is: foam, needles, fiber.
