About the event
Make this Valentine's Day extra special and gift a hand written love letter. Come alone to learn how to write a letter in modern calligraphy or bring your lover with you as a cute Valentine's Day activity.
In this class, 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 class I'll walk you through creating a layout for your letter and how to apply the skills you learned to a final piece.
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.
