Event Overview

Join us for a fresh, fun, and most importantly, not intimidating, workshop that will introduce you to the world of modern calligraphy! Whether you're looking to be ready to use calligraphy for your wedding or just want to try something you've been thinking about for a while, this class is a great start. This class will cover how to do basic dip pen calligraphy using a pen holder, nibs, and calligraphy ink. It will be great for beginners as we will go over basic skills like dipping your pen, applying pressure, techniques for practice, and we'll learn a calligraphy alphabet in a fun and modern style.


Tips:


-Don't skip meals beforehand in order to have a steady hand, although I will provide light snacks


-Come 10-15 minutes early to find parking (there are a couple lots and street parking)


-Feel free to BYOB (including wine, beer, cider, etc.)

    Such a fun night! It was the perfect balance of learning, laughing, and inspiration for a girls' night out. I left with the cutest pouch filled with everything I need to practice my skills and a few new tricks and tips that will make my writing projects so much more fun and successful in the future. Thank you so much, Kelly! You are wonderful!

    Kelly's Modern Calligraphy class was wonderful! She hosted it at the River North Workshop on a large table in the back of the room. There were 7 of us in the class and it didn't feel crowded. Kelly had all the supplies needed plus a cute little pouch to store our calligraphy pens in. She taught at a slow pace which was perfect for beginners (like me)! She had instructions, workbooks, and practice sheets for us. We learned the entire alphabet - lower and uppercase and had time to practice writing words and sentences. She had tasty snacks and encouraged everyone to bring wine or a drink. It was a laid back, fun class and I hope she hosts another!

    Kelly was a great teacher! Walking in, she had the table set with instructional packets, ink wells, and adorable pouches with our supplies. She also made each of us a pretty little name card. It was nice to walk in and see such a lovely set-up, really set the mood for the class. Kelly talked us through the basics of calligraphy, including the best way to hold the pen and the angles we should work with, and gave us the freedom to move on at our own paces. She also was great about answering all our questions. Would definitely recommend this class!

    I enjoyed my experience taking Modern Calligraphy. The class was well organized and the instructor was very kind and helpful. I am inspired to keep working on technique and hopefully one day master the art of calligraphy.
