About the event

*Please let me know if you're a leftie after signing up!*

WHAT/Class Description: In this 2.5 hour workshop, Samantha Testa will show you how to use beginner pointed pen supplies and guide you through basic drills and practice sheets to start making beautiful calligraphy. A small class size means one on one guidance, help with drills, the pen strokes, letterforms, flourishing, and stylizing your writing. You will use these skills to create your own postcard set and get tips to do an outer envelope.

The workshop fee includes, but isn't limited to, all materials and preparation:

-a personalized MPP workbook with several styles of lettering, tracing paper, scrap paper, Rhodia notepad, 2 nibs, a high end nib holder (pictured), black sumi ink, and a set of postcards to personalize.

We'll go over the basics so if you are a total newbie...don't worry, you've got this. If you have done some lettering before but would just like some more guidance, we can make that happen, too!
