Event description
Advance your calligraphy skills learning from Toronto's very best and create beautiful signs at this BRAND NEW online workshop!

About this Event

This is more than your average workshop. Embiria hosts meaningful experiences led by experts & artists designed for you to learn, create & reconnect with your best self.

Continue expanding your calligraphy skillset with this intermediate workshop led by the talented Sylvia of @viacalligraphy now taking place online! Acrylic signs and place cards are the hottest calligraphy trend. You've probably seen them as welcome signs at weddings, showers and brand events. Acrylic is an understated and elegant surface that can open up a world of opportunities if you're looking to offer your services to friends and family. It's also a fun and forgiving next medium to try out if you want to start lettering beyond paper.

In this two hour online workshop you'll learn about surfaces and tools, composition and layout, how to create guidelines, troubleshooting issues with paint pens, removing mistakes, best practices for faux-lligraphy and where you can apply your new skills. From the comfort of your own home you'll also have plenty of time for Q&As with a signage pro. Plus you'll end the workshop with a complete 8x10" sign of your own creation!

Supplies and materials are included in the course fee and will be shipped to you in advance:

  • Sylvia's Alphabet Exemplar
  • 3 Acrylic Panels (8x10", 4x6", 2x4")
  • Sharpie Paint Pens
  • Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil

Note: This class will be focused on expanding your lettering skillset and will not cover any aspect of beginner brush calligraphy. You must have basic experience of lettering to get the most out of this course. If you're interested in learning beginner calligraphy, visit www.embiria.ca/experiences to book a spot in our next Intro to Calligraphy workshop on July 7th!

This workshop will take place via an interactive and live online platform. The link and information to join will be emailed to you in advance, and you may choose whether you'd like to join with video or audio.

About the facilitator:

Sylvia is a downtown Toronto girl who loves her city as much as Drake does. When she's not working her day job in Digital Marketing, she's working on calligraphy commissions or teaching brush calligraphy at classes with the hopes that her students fall in love with lettering as obsessively as she did.
