In this 2-hour introductory class, you’ll learn the basics of modern calligraphy using a traditional nib and ink -- no legible handwriting required. After learning all about the calligraphy tools and working on basic strokes, you'll have a chance to experiment with your own style in a modern and relaxed way. You’ll create unique letterforms and style your own alphabet with lots of hands-on practice time and guided demonstrations and instruction. At the end of the session, all supplies will be yours to keep to continue practicing. Plus, enjoy bubbly and light bites while you write! Grab a friend and come learn something new.
No need to bring anything! Lefties welcome. All materials included and yours to take home: pen, two nibs, ink and inkwell, full pad of paper, Sam’s workbook, and a tote bag to take it all home in.
Space is limited. Workshop registrations are non-refundable.
