Event description

Description

You love helping others and making an impact. You know you want and need to do something creative, but it feels out of reach. Or, maybe you’re not confident in being creative, or don’t have any calligraphy experience, but you want to get a taste of it.

CALLING ALL CURIOUS OR CLOSET CALLIGRAPHERS AND CREATIVES. 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 this 3 hour workshop, you will:

  1. Show up for yourself, slow down, refresh your heart, and turn on your creative spark in an encouraging, collaborative space.
  2. Learn the basics of brush calligraphy, as a foundation for future adventures (gifts, cards, envelopes, dip pen calligraphy, endless possibilities, oh my!)
  3. Get hands-on instruction and immediate feedback tailored to you, saving you time, accelerating your progress (this ain't youtube here ;)
  4. 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!)
  5. 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 write notes of encouragement to the women.

WHAT WE WILL COVER:
  1. Definitions and terminology
  2. Pressures of the brush pen
  3. Warm-up drills
  4. Basic strokes
  5. How to connect strokes into lowercase letters
  6. Finding your style

TICKET INCLUDES:
  • Instruction and interaction (class size limited to provide tailored feedback)
  • Basic brush pen set

  • Blank cards + envelopes sets for you to design
