October calligraphy workshop

After my last weekend of calligraphy workshops, I have been asked countless times when the next one would be.  So I’m excited to announce that I will be teaching a Beginner Workshop on Saturday, October 25 and an Intermediate Workshop on Sunday, October 26.

These are set up a little differently than most other workshops being offered now.  I’ve found that in a 3 hour class we barely scratch the surface, so I wanted to offer this longer and more comprehensive format.  Both will be 4 1/2  hours (10:30 am – 3 pm) and include a full lunch and cocktails to loosen up our writing arms!  In the Beginner Workshop we will delve deeply into the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, and in the Intermediate Workshop we will do more of the fun stuff such as flourishes, color, gouache, and some brush-work.

They are actually designed to work together, so even if you have never picked up a calligraphy pen before, you could take the beginner class on Saturday and get comfortable with using a pointed pen, and then take the intermediate class on Sunday to play with all the fun stuff.

I like to view these workshops as not only learning opportunities, but kind of like fun (usually girly – although we love it when men join in the fun!) parties – so it becomes an “experience” as well.  That makes it a great birthday present for a friend, or bachelorette party idea, etc.
