*Please note: Although our currently-scheduled Washington, D.C.  and Alexandria, Va. workshops are sold out, we do have spots available in one of our fall Middleburg, Va. workshops, if that location is convenient for you. 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 dates are posted across all of our locations (we also often teach in Falls Church, Va., Charlottesville, Va. and Baltimore, Md.). Would love for you to join us in the future!

About the Class:
As featured in both Southern Living and Washingtonian magazines, as well as Washington Post Express, spend the day playing with pens and ink! Michele will show 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, hereherehereherehere and here.)
