Summer has flown by and if you're looking for one last hurrah for yourself and some friends, you can join the next Intro to Modern Calligraphy workshop at the cutest spot (imho) in Southeast Portland. We'll cozy up at the lovely Tendue to gather in good company, sip some rosé, and learn all the basics of pointed pen calligraphy. I get a lot of questions about the pointed pen (it's the nib and pen holder I use to create the modern style of calligraphy you may have noticed) and the detail for this class. So I thought I'd address a few of them here. In the mean time, go snag a spot if you want to get your seat saved in the next class!
Maybe you're not sure where to start but you'd like to learn how to create modern calligraphy
If you're like me when I first picked up a calligraphy pen, you might be wondering which nibs are best for beginners and the best inks for practice paper. You may have even picked up a few nibs and pen holders that are lying around, barely used because you couldn't figure out how to hold the pen or get those flowing thick and thin lines.
This workshop is for you. This is the class I wish I had when I was getting started.
Skip the troubleshooting so you can put your time into practicing your letter forms and using the pen correctly. You'll also receive a curated calligraphy starter kit with all my favorite tried-and-true supplies that I still use and love.
These interactive and hands-on workshops are the perfect excuse to learn something new, get creative, and build community around the table, workshop style!
Introduction to Modern Calligraphy, Introduction to Brush Lettering, and Intermediate Calligraphy are currently offered at various venues in and around Portland, Oregon. If you've been wanting to get started on a calligraphy practice of your own, consider this your invitation!
