What we'll do

This is a small group workshop designed for beginning enthusiasts, to get people inspired about the joy of calligraphy in a relaxed, comfortable studio setting. I teach the basics of the traditional technique of dipping a steel-nibbed pen into a bottle of liquid acrylic ink, introducing you to my favorite beginner's lettering style "Romantic" which is my own creative interpretation of a modern twist! I focus the instruction on recommendations & suggested goals for personal practice & study following class, dozens of cool ideas for using your calligraphy skills, interactive instruction & 1- on -1 guidance. What is Included with Registration No need to bring anything - all materials supplied: 2 pen holders / 3 steel nibs / 3 different colors of waterproof acrylic ink...all of this is to use both during class AND to take home with you PLUS a fantastic "to go kit" with an assortment of colorful card stock, creative project ideas, practice guideline sheets of various sizes (print outs as well as emailed PDF's), in addition to an informative follow-up email that is delivered to each student following class - it includes a recap of where to buy additional calligraphy supplies, PDF versions of 5 hand-lettered alphabets, articles to read, videos to watch & more creative inspiration to keep you practicing at home for weeks, months & years to follow! Please text me once your request is accepted so that I have your phone number! My phone number will be provided in the confirmation email (check your spam folder just in case!)
