Joan has taught calligraphy and related classes for over 20 years around the country - at international lettering arts conferences, for calligraphy guilds, galleries, community colleges, and small groups. These are a few of the workshops currently available, ask if you don't see what you are looking for.
To arrange classes, contact Joan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joan has two weeks/weekends left open to schedule workshops in 2012: September 10-15 and September 17-22 Consider sharing expenses with a local fiber arts group by having papercasting and silk fusion.
Costs for guild workshops include lowest reasonable airfare from St. Louis Missouri plus $45 towards getting to/from the airport (the nearest airport is Columbia MO but it never has connections to cheap flights)
In general, teaching is $375 per day except for single-day classes which run $400 (usually takes as much prep time, and of course as much travel time as longer classes but am willing to teach longer hours) Extra-long days, such as to fit a three-day class into two, may also cost more, but half-days are FREE if done so I can fly out on Saturday evening. I do not teach on Sundays but many guilds have had great success mid-week or with workshops that go Thursday-Sat - sometimes Thurs. 3-9 for instance, or on Friday holidays. Be flexible and have fun! I'm happy to stay with guild members (mild allergies make no pets a plus) and will do whatever helps make a workshop successful for your group - just let me know.
Casting and canvas classes require a local address to ship clay or canvas to, canvas class needs a couple of willing helpers to cut lots of canvas the evening before class.
