About the event
Have you always wanted to learn calligraphy? You got a beginner kit months or years ago, and all it's done is collect dust in your closet. You scroll through videos on social media of pretty lettering and think "I wish I could do that" yet you never put pen to paper?
If you're feeling intimidated or lost this Atlanta calligraphy class is for you!
In this modern calligraphy workshop, you'll learn the basic process of building letters in modern styles with guides, worksheets, and instruction. You'll also receive a beginner kit of calligraphy materials including a pen holder, nibs, ink, and of course, paper. During the last portion of the class, you'll have the opportunity to test your pen and ink on different types of paper and envelopes. You will even be able to take home folded cards to write cards to your loved ones using your new skills!
No prior calligraphy experience is necessary. We'll be covering how to use the materials as well as how to build letters, write words, and layout a final piece of calligraphy.
