Next up in our “teacher catch ups” series is Lindsey Buck of The Hive Studio. Last year we had the opportunity to produce a truly unique workshop with Lindsey. Our beautiful two day calligraphy brunch workshop, featured a Friday evening Calligraphy 101 class and a more intensive Saturday afternoon class that focused more on Calligraphy for events ( chalkboards , and digital images etc.). The catering was done by The New Old Fashioned Food  {details on that coming soon}.

Planning and executing Lindsey’s workshops was really exciting. This was the first time that we would do a two-day event or a specialty workshop for event planners and professionals. Being that calligraphy is only one of Lindsey’s many talents she was  able to work with us on concept and we really wanted to help realize her vision for the day. She traveled from Ohio to join us for the weekend and worked tirelessly alongside us on every beautiful detail.  The images and video from that workshop provided by Love Me Do were seriously adorable. Thank you once again to Doris from Nina The Midnight Baker for the gorgeous cookies we surprised all the students with, and to Sarah K. of Heart and Dash for your assistance that weekend. We had some amazing and fun students and the photo booth pictures are proof of how much fun we had! Here is a little snippet from the chat we had with Lindsey recently:

 

NOF:    What was your favorite thing about the workshop you collaborated on with The New Old Fashioned?

 

Lindsey: The atmosphere, location, support from super fun hosts, & yummy food. I can't pick just one :)

 

NOF:    Why do you love instructing and sharing your passion, as opposed to just working on your craft  and creating only the finished product to market? Why share your knowledge?

 

Lindsey: Because I feel calligraphy is a way to add nostalgia back into our fast-paced world--with cursive leaving the school systems, now, & everyone in the whirlwind of emails & texts, it's a skill I think needs to remain to help all of us slow down, appreciate the skill of the handwritten art, & loveliness of the handwritten letter.

NOF:     What are some of the things you would like to learn how to do? (crafts, hobbies, anything at all)? 

 

Lindsey: I would love to learn how to create some pretty wall hangings (weaving), how to keep my plants & greens alive (not exactly the greenest thumb over here, but I'm trying), & maybe something related to ceramics or pottery. I took a couple of classes in college, but would like to brush up on my skills & create something for my studio!

 

NOF:    What are you working on right now that you are most excited about? (writing a book, selling new products, or working on a big project or event)?

 

Lindsey: I am currently creating new products for my new wholesale line (gift wrap, prints, postcards, & some new items!), & have some exciting calligraphy workshops on the horizon this year!
