Calligraphy Workshop

I’m excited to announce my next weekend of calligraphy workshops in Los Angeles – a Beginner Workshop on Saturday, March 7 and an Intermediate Workshop on Sunday, March 8.

I was amazed (and very flattered) that the Beginner Workshop sold out in just over 24 hours, after I sent an email to my mailing list.  But there are still a handful of spaces in the Intermediate class.  If you want to sign up for the mailing list so that next time you’re one of the first to hear, fill out my contact form and click the box next to “Email me.”

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.
