This class will go through the process of laying out the curves needed for either a vertical or horizontal sundial. We will use graphical methods so no math is required. The technique is period and relatively easy to learn. While you do not need to actually draw a dial in the class I will be going through the steps required and will assist anyone who wants to try. In order to draw the curves you will need a pencil, paper tablet, a compass, a straight edge (ruler), and a protractor.
