The Fundamentals of Letter Writing | Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses

Do you miss the art of the handwritten letter?  Hermann-Grima/Gallier Historic Houses are hosting a workshop just for you!

In this two-hour class, Nancy Sharon Collins will instruct, discuss, and encourage participants to practice hand-writing personal notes and letters. Collins is the country’s leading expert on engraved social stationery and authored The Complete Engraver, a guide to monograms, crests, ciphers, seals, and the etiquette and history of social stationery. She’s a frequent subject of popular media such as Town & Country, Garden & Gun, Martha Stewart Wedding, Vogue, Veranda, The New York Times, and the WWNO/NPR show “Out to Lunch.”
