Welcome to Advaark! We’ll post every day until Christmas Eve, with a crafty idea for Christmas. Maybe we’ll give you some ideas for crafty things to do too!
Today, we’re having a go at Calligraphy. We’ve picked a Christmassy word, and Esther, Arnold, Vincent and Winston are going to write it in nice letters to make a banner.
Everyone is concentrating on getting their letter right. Winston says he can’t concentrate if he can see the others working, so he’s turned round.
There, that’s three letters done. What about you Winston, finished yet?
Ah. Well, it’s beautifully drawn Winston, but you’ve done it again…
Never mind, says Esther, you worked very hard on it, and we know what it’s meant to be, we’ll use it anyway
So, Esther sews some thread through the papers to string them together, and we have a lovely banner!
You don’t need special pens for this. We drew the shapes of the letters copied from an image. You could even just find a nice font on your computer and print them out!
