Alternately, if you contact us we will be delighted to add you to our e-newsletter list so that you’ll be alerted when new Alexandria calligraphy dates are posted. You may also want to check out our new Introduction to Modern Brush Lettering workshops; they are incredibly fun (and colorful!) and we do still have a few spots available in our spring classes in Alexandria, Falls Church, Va., Washington, DC, Baltimore, Md., and Middleburg, Va. Would love for you to join us either for a calligraphy workshop or a modern brush lettering class soon!

About the Class:
As featured in both Southern Living and Washingtonian, as well as Washington Post Express, spend some time playing with pens and ink! We’re excited to share that in April, Michele will again teach a workshop at the Morrison House in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria. Surrounded by the Morrison House’s gorgeous interiors and capitalizing on its literary theme, she will teach you how to use traditional materials (pointed pen calligraphy nibs, an oblique pen holder and real ink) to create gorgeous hand-lettering with a modern twist. You’ll learn how to create the nuanced thick and thin lines that set pointed pen lettering apart from regular handwriting. Plus, you’ll go home with all the materials you’ll need to continue practicing and showing off your new lettering skills.

– All supplies, including exemplars for three Meant To Be Calligraphy lettering styles, pen holder, nibs, ink and more.
– A sense of accomplishment! (Read about past students’ workshop experiences here, here, here, here, here, here , herehereherehere and here.)
