The last couple weekends, I had the opportunity to teach a few modern calligraphy workshops. It took a bit of work to prepare and a little bit of nervousness in anticipation, but it was all completely worth it. I loved every minute of sharing a skill that I've come to love over the years.
My first class was actually held at my friend's parent's home with a few members of her family. A nice, intimate setting. They even had the Carpenters playing in the background! It was so much fun. I loved the excitement in those students. And they totally rocked the pen and ink! Plus, Bethany's mom's cookies were so, so yummy.
The next class was a bit larger and held in my home. Both classes had a bit of a holiday theme, so we worked in black, as well as gold ink. We also worked on some holiday phrases once we were warmed up and had some letter practice. These ladies were so talented! I've had requests for an intermediate class, so we can go more into letter spacing, composition, flourishes, different nibs, and more! I'm so excited to set that up.
Here is the link for the next upcoming workshop. How fun would it be to gift to a friend or family member and then attend together?? Spaces are very limited, so sign up quick:)
