About the event

These little quirky calligraphic birds were developed by Suzie Beringer as another way to use our lettering skills - but they are so much fun to make…flapping wings, bases on springs etc…also, they make great gifts. There are many ways to display them which is part of the fun…the possibilities are endless.
