This beginner calligraphy workshop, led by Jenna Blazevich of Vichcraft, will cover the basics of pointed pen oblique calligraphy. We will work with a simplified alphabet that references Copperplate and Spencerian styles, and we will also explore an additional brush pen lettering technique. Whether you've picked up a calligraphy pen before or aren't even sure what one looks like, this class is for you!
One session. Registration – $85
