Historic Letter Writing and Letter Locking

Historic Letter Writing and Letter Locking In-Person

What did people do to send letters before the widespread use of the envelope? They folded their letters like origami to lock them so they could travel without opening!

In this class we will learn a bit of history and etiquette of letter writing, some calligraphy basics, and learn a few letter locking techniques! Get ready to write some letters!
