Join us at WORD for a workshop with Charles & Thorn, creators of the Stenciletter Stencil Lettering Kit. Purchase of the kit is not required for entry, but is encouraged as Spencer and Kelly will be leading participants in crafts from the book.

As a technique for quickly and inexpensively reproducing shapes and images, stencils have been used by artists and craftspeople for centuries. This playful and unique kit contains four die-cut stencils housed in a clear pocket on the back of the workbook: geometric shapes (2), ornamental shapes (1), and one pre-cut alphabet (1).
