This course will help us look at letters as documents that have value as gifts and bearers of history. In breaking down the components of the craft, participants are taught techniques that can be applied in many forms of communication and written pieces.

The instructor, Karen Fullerton, has a passion for letter writing and began her enthusiastic embrace of the art during a six-month sojourn in southern France where she attended the Festival of Correspondence in a small stone village of Grignan. She has her Masters of Education from Tufts University.
