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.”
The workshop is July 23 at 10 AM. Bring your own stationery and favorite writing instrument, be it gel pen or quill feather and ink bottle! Gallier House is located at 1132 Royal Street in the French Quarter.
