Start off 2024 with a new skill!
Learn modern calligraphy in this introductory class! This class is suitable for beginners (no experience necessary), but also for those who have been practicing on their own and would like to learn proper technique. In this class, we will cover the basics of using a dip pen, nibs and ink, basic upstrokes and downstrokes, the lowercase and uppercase alphabet, and the basics of combining letters into words. A simple modern alphabet will be used. You will learn HOW to write letters, not simply copy them, so that you can practice at home with confidence.
You will also spend the last 30 minutes choosing your Word of the Year! This has been a beautiful practice in my own life over the last 7 or 8 years. Instead of making New Year's Resolutions, I choose a theme word for the year. Some of mine over the last few years have been Gratitude, Rooted and Ordinary.
You will receive a starter kit which includes a dip pen, two different nibs, a small pot of ink and a workbook. This is a 3 hour workshop.
Would you like to add a pad of Rhodia paper? This is the paper I recommend to practice with after class, and is the gold standard in practice paper for ink and brush markers. While it is NOT REQUIRED, and all supplies are provided for class, if you would like to add a pad of paper, you may do so at checkout for $13.
**Your emailed receipt is your ticket. No physical tickets will be mailed, and there is nothing to pick up before the class. All supplies will be waiting for you at the workshop!**
