Looking to take your pointed pen calligraphy skills to the next level and put that ink to good use?  Have you dabbled with calligraphy before but feel ready to dig deeper? If so, grab a friend (or fly solo!) and get ready to wow your friends and family with some beautifully addressed correspondence! Instruction will focus on letter formation development, different writing styles/ alphabets (super modern all the way to classic bridal), spacing/ centering written work, using various guidelines for envelope addressing and mixing and thinning inks/ goauche (black, white, gold, copper). Participants are welcome to bring in personal stationery for help and guidance in tackling an envelope addressing project.

  • alphabet worksheets (various styles)
  • 1 hand lettered totebag

Instruction will focus on creating the look of pointed pen calligraphy with pencils, markers and paint, a process sometimes referred to as 'faux-lligraphy.' I'll show you how to draw, thicken and join your letters seamlessly using gridded paper, guidelines and my alphabet to create beautiful modern calligraphy.

Hours of careful thought and planning went into developing this comprehensive class. With a formal training in Copperplate calligraphy, a Masters Degree in Education and more than 10 years of elementary school teaching experience, I created a calligraphy workshop with the beginner student in mind. Whether you’ve never picked up a calligraphy pen before, or you’re looking to brush up on your technique- this is the class for you! You’ll learn how to properly use a calligraphy pen and nib to form strokes and letters in a style that is uniquely your own. Instruction is based on the Copperplate alphabet, but with a modern twist! After taking this beginner level calligraphy workshop, you’ll walk away with all the tools, confidence and skills needed to begin beautifying all things paper.
