Calligraphy for Newbies

2018 July Newbies.jpg

This 2-hour tutorial is geared towards those who are interested in the art of modern calligraphy and have little to no experience with this craft. This class covers the basics of modern calligraphy - lettering, flourishing, colored inks, and is a lot of fun. Perfect for those who want to learn a new skill or for those who want a fun afternoon out with friends.

Along with personal instruction from Dionne, you'll take home a beautiful calligraphy starter kit comprising of:
- 1 x Personalized Clipboard
- 1 x Pen Holder
- 2 x Calligraphy inks (one black and one in another color)
- 2 nibs
- 2 x Calligraphy Exemplars (Alphabet and Flourishes)
- 1 x Calligraphy "cheat sheet" so you won't need to take notes in class and have an easy reference when practicing at home
- 1 x Calligraphy Tracing Pad
- Some other goodies that we will keep as a surprise! :)
