Calligraphy has broken out of the 1800’s and into the modern age! In this class, you will receive all of the tools you need to get started with this reinvented style of classic Copperplate calligraphy. This is a beginner’s course, intended to get you familiar with the tools, and to start practicing the types of strokes that create letters and forms. After learning the basics and completing an alphabet, we’ll talk a little bit about creating your personal modern style, and then end by creating a personalized set of notecards or monogrammed stationary to take home! Stop texting and start practicing your handwriting, we’re about to take things lo-tech.
TOOLS YOU WILL TAKE HOME WITH YOU
5 Nibs (4 different styles)
Bottle of Black Ink
Blank Stationary Cards

WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING...
"This class was phenomenal, and in such a great space/atmosphere! The teacher was very nice and allowed for a lot of creative exploration at our own pace. Turns out calligraphy isn't so bad once you have some understanding of the basics -- how to hold the pen, the stroke patterns, etc! This skill will still need practice, but I already can't wait to try other lettering styles out and hopefully make a few things for my wedding this summer."
