Calligraphy Workshop

If you are just starting out or are looking for hands-on discussion to improve your calligraphic hand, this workshop is for you!

Join host, Jess Smith, to sip some wine while learning a new skill. During this beginner workshop, we will cover all the essentials in pointed-pen calligraphy. We will review the basics on how to hold the pen with correct hand position, discuss pressure and how it relates to ink flow, cover all the tools you will need to get started in modern calligraphy, and how to take care of your supplies. We will work through the alphabet together, and discuss the fundamentals of connecting letters. We will also cover different ways to make your calligraphy unique to you, how to push past common early mistakes, and tips and techniques that will help you fine tune your calligraphy work. The calligraphy workshops are kept at a smaller size in order to ensure that Jess is able to work more directly with you.

Cost is $69.99 per person. Click here to register today.
