You’re in the right place if you:

  • You’ve started your calligraphy journey and want to take your lettering to the next level. You think flourishes will add fun and sophistication to your lettering (or your natural handwriting).

  • You’ve been admiring flourishing and lettering longer quotes and you wonder what the secret is to making it look so effortless. You know it’s harder than it looks because you’ve tried, and you just can’t seem to get your layouts to look right, but you want to learn because you want to create cards and gifts for friends, and write longer inspirational quotes.

  • Or perhaps you’re a closet calligrapher, experimenting on your own at home through youtube videos or library books. You wonder if real-time learning with like minded pen geeks might accelerate your learning.

  • Or maybe you’re searching for a fun and meaningful creative experience to share with your friends.

No matter where you are in your journey, these calligraphy workshops will refresh your heart and empower you with the creative confidence and tools to live an inspired and intentional life of impact.

This is your invitation to step away from the craziness of your daily life for a little creative space for relaxed fun, inspiration, and connection.

In a hyper-digitized super-speedy world, calligraphy and handlettering bring back a touch of personal and relaxation/reflection into your life and relationships.

In this 4 hour begintermediate workshop, you will:

  1. Show up for yourself, slow down, refresh your heart, and turn on your creative spark in an encouraging, collaborative space. Lettering with meaningful layouts is a simple way to practice creative self-care, which will bring a little more calm and creative play into your daily life.

  2. Learn how to write FAUX CALLIGRAPHY and create striking LETTERING LAYOUTS using DESIGN & COMPOSITION PRINCIPLES, enabling you to elevate your lettering. You’ll develop your eye and the language for identifying strong design and common errors. Increase the quality and scope of projects you can create.

  3. Slow down and dig deeper into the meaning of words. Let your creativity guide you in how best to visually express the heart behind the words.

  4. Get hands-on instruction and immediate feedback tailored to you, saving you time, reducing frustration, accelerating your progress (trust me, I know the grief of awkward looking flourishes from trial and error ;)

  5. Create meaningful connections and conversations with others in community. Meet some new people, or invite a friend for a creative date (makes a great gift!).

  6. Collaborate and contribute to a purpose greater than yourself…10% of proceeds will be donated to helping women start a new life free from sexual exploitation. You’ll also be given opportunity to donate your practice lettering as notes of encouragement to women in recovery.

THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEAL FOR:

  • “Begintermediate” calligraphers who have explored basic lettering styles. Ideally you’ve taken an introductory class (either online or in person). If you haven’t taken a class, you can still enjoy this class using your own natural handwriting, but you might want to learn one or more basic styles first, to get the most out of this class as we won’t be focusing on specific lettering techniques here.

  • Self-experimenting, you-tube surfing dabblers who want live feedback and want to take their lettering design skills to the next level.

  • Anyone who likes to get creative for a good cause

  • If you need a more beginner workshop, you can VIEW MORE WORKSHOP TOPICS OVER HERE>>

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Your smile, and an open spirit to learn and make connections in community.

  • All supplies will be provided.

  • Optional, not required: if you have some favourite pens you would like to use in your final design, feel free to bring them.

You deserve to treat yourself to a creative date that will refresh your heart and bring inspiration to others. The world will be brighter for it!

10% of proceeds will go to http://www.safoundation.com, a charity with a proven long term success in freeing women from a life of sexual exploitation in Vancouver and globally.

REFUNDS are not available, however you may defer your ticket to a future workshop, or you may transfer your ticket to a friend. If the workshop is cancelled due to not reaching the minimum number of participants required to run it, you will have a choice of defering your ticket to a future workshop, or receiving a full refund.
