IAMPETH Courses??
« on: February 11, 2017, 01:00:52 PM »
I've been stalking the IAMPETH website, to see if I can figure out what courses are going to be offered this summer.  I can't find anything about this year's convention.  I know when registration is & I am a member (and have signed into the website), but I can't find a course list.  Does anyone know when the list of classes will be released??  I got all of the classes that i wanted last year, and am hoping to do the same this year!

I found this on the IAMPETH website today
"
ATTENTION MEMBERS
We are awaiting the final  copy of the Registration Packet from the editor. It will be posted the moment we receive it and you will get an email telling you that it is there and how to access it.  Thank you for your patience, we promise, it's worth the wait!  (updated Feb 9, 10:41 am, cst)

UPDATE Feb 11,  9:22 am, cst - we are still waiting for the packet from the editor.
So sorry for the delay."

So hopefully the reg pkt will be ready soon.  The classes are listed in the reg pkt.

Cheers, Michael

I'm glad that I'm not alone in this! :-)  It's good to know that other Penheads are with me in the wait! :-)

And here it is!
I'm not as excited for the classes as I was the years before actually. What do you think?
I'm not sure I'll go this year because of costs and stuff, you know. If I was REALLY REALLY excited about the classes, yeah, but hmmm ...

I agree with your impression.
Most of the master penmen I would love to meet and take a bit of instruction from aren't going to be there. The whole program seems to be oriented towards beginners, which is fine, as I would guess most of the members now are less experienced. Also, the teaching focus seems to be broadening (less traditional) to include more styles, which should appeal to a wider audience, but again, I'm really not interested in all these other areas. But that's just me, where I am at this point. Many prefer a big buffet; I prefer a few choice items.
My travel dollars will be spent elsewhere.

I like the classes but I think I'll be going to Letterworks instead. It is in Utah this year and much closer to me. I'm a little nervous about it though as I know it's much different from Iampeth..

Schin, your message just made my day!!   I am going to Letterworks and it will be my first calligraphy conference ever.   I would love to meet you!  Not trying to sound to starstruck - but your work is absolutely incredible!

That sounds awesome.  I'll be in the dorms also.   It will be nice to put a face with the name.   :-)
