New Finnish Calligraphy book !

A Finnish Calligraphy book just appears. Book has been made by the members of Finnish Calligraphy Society together with publisher "Moreeni". "Kirjain kirjaimelta" (A letter by letter) presents new Finnish calligraphy. Above all the book focuses on different projects, techniques and scripts. There is also a Gallery.
This is the FIRST of a kind in Finland.

My copperplate script.

My works.

My poem on progress

This is a piece which I did with brush. Originally I thought it could be a background for the poem.
But actually it is fine by itself...

Morton Morrell part 2

On Saturday evening we had a special dinner; this is the last weekend for third class students.
This year group 24 invited all of us  to "treat time" after lecture.

Invitation was beside our plates.

Well, the lecture was on Sunday morning, because the door was locked...

So we had our treat earlier.

They treated us with wine and chocolates, in English colours.

Moreton Morrell 31.8.-2.9.2012, part 1

This time we travelled to Moreton Morrell on the same day, first by plane from Tampere to Stansted. From Stansted we took a bus to London. We were supposed to stay out at Marylebone, but the driver never said that stop (we should have got out at Baker Street...). So we went all the way to Victoria Station. We took a taxi to Marylebone station, from where we continued by train to Leamington Spa and then by taxi to the college. Well, we arrived just in time for dinner at 19:00.
A quick cafe latte and smoothie at the Marylebone station (Marika and Anja).

On Saturday the class started at 10:00. Before that we took a little walk and had breakfast.
At first we put our works on the wall and discussed about them.
The chairman of SSI (The Society of Scribes and Illuminators) Sylvie visited all the classes on Saturday.
She discussed with all of us about our works and gave some advices and comments.
