From Cape Town I moved onward to Bloemfontein in the Free State where I met another wonderful group of talented calligraphers. Everyone could speak English of course but their first language was Afrikaans. I enjoyed listening to the classroom banter even though I had no understanding whatsoever of what they were saying. I am enjoying trialing SA cuisine in particular melktert and bobotie. Many thanks go to my host family Willemien, Franna, Dian & Mika Kruger for their hospitality and warm welcome.
The subject for our three day workshop was
"watercolour cut-back technique using Trajan letters".
Please enjoy these wonderful outcomes.
