Calligraphy on Ice
Monday, March 22, 2021
7 - 9 p.m.
On-line with Andrea Alvarez Reno
At the intersection of Calligraphy and Cookies, you will find our first Guild sponsored program of 2021. Yes, that is right, this is a delicious freebie for you!
This is NOT a cookie decorating class, this is a class especially for calligraphers, by a calligrapher. Andrea Reno will provide us with recipes and much helpful information for making outstanding cookies, but in the workshop, we will look at how we calligraphers can write with icing.
If you haven’t already checked out Andrea Reno’s luscious work, go to her website at www.andreareno.com
Andrea has presented this workshop to the Chicago Calligraphy Collective. She made a video on Instagram and FB with Royal Icing instructions. The link is below.
(whenever she says Chicago Calligraphy Collective, think instead FotA 😊 )
All supplies can be found at Michael’s or at Andrea’s favorite bakery supplies links below.
A handout with supplies, recipes and suppliers is found on the Members Only page.
We will video tape the Workshop, so you will have access to it for a month.
Need not have cookies to watch the video, if you just make the icing
You can practice on parchment paper. But why not have cookies, every letter guaranteed delicious!
These are the links to Andrea's videos on her social media platforms:
Facebook: Andrea Reno Calligraphy & Cakes
notes from Andrea: On the facebook group , the majority of the audience is Hispanic
so you will find videos in both Spanish and English.
The videos you will find are for making royal icing and another one for making royal icing flowers.
The royal icing flowers video is not part of the class, but it is there if someone wants to give it a try,
Please remind everyone it is not necessary to have iced cookies for class, because they can
practice on parchment paper, but it definitely makes it more fun to have them.
I hope you will join us Monday March 22 at 7 p.m.!!
