If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to take part in the Introduction to Pointed Pen Calligraphy Workshop that I teach at Fifteen Eleven in Old Town, this post from one of my past students is a must-read! (Thanks, Emily, for surprising me with your sweet words and for even snapping a photo!)
Meant To Be Calligraphy
The workshops I teach at Fifteen Eleven are featured in the December issue of Southern Living! They are one of twelve “experiential” gift ideas the mag recommends as can’t-miss presents this holiday season. Teaching these workshops is one of my favorite things ever, so it’s exciting to see them pop up in such a fabulous magazine alongside eleven other unique and fun suggestions for adventure-filled gifts. Hooray!
Hi all! We just added a new date for my Introduction to Pointed Pen Calligraphy workshop at Fifteen Eleven. If you’ve been thinking of taking part in the class and are available on December 1, this is your chance! Only caveat: sign up quickly; there are only a couple of spots left. I will also be teaching an intermediate-level workshop, which is open to anyone who has taken the intro class, on December 8, and we still have a couple of openings for that class as well. Sign up for the Level II workshop can be found here.
New dates have just been posted for the pointed pen calligraphy workshops I teach at Fifteen Eleven in Old Town, Alexandria. Spots are going quickly, so if you have been considering taking part, please sign up soon! In all, I’ll be teaching two introduction to pointed pen calligraphy workshops, one advanced calligraphy workshop (open to those who have taken the first class) and, new this fall, a workshop on how to create a hand-lettered monogram or duogram (the latter intertwines the initials of two people instead of just one).
I see the monogram class as being perfect for anyone who wants to create a distinctive personalized mark that they can use on everything from stationery to custom cocktail napkins. It would also be ideal for couples who are getting married – a duogram could be used on invitations, programs, menus, thank you notes, you name it – or parents-to-be who want to have a monogram for use on birth announcements or stationery for their new little one. You can find all the details and sign up for either a calligraphy workshop or the monogram workshop here.
