Calligraphy - Wednesday, May 25  - 11 a.m.

Love the look of calligraphy, but it seems too difficult? Come join us as we break it down and provide a great foundation for years to come. In this class, we will start with a marker to get our flow ready, then move on to lettering with the nib and ink.  ** This class requires a previous hand lettering class as a prerequisite as this is not for a beginner.

The workshop includes practice materials, small ink well, a calligraphy pen, envelopes and place cards to practice on, plus additional worksheets. 

Mimosas, sparkling water with cheese and crackers will be provided. 

1.5 hour class

$100 per person
