Workshop Details:

This intimate workshop will start with the basics from the Calligraphy 101 class how to correctly hold your pen, dipping into your ink, understanding ink flow & pressure to paper, practicing the alphabet — and will lead to developing your own calligraphy style for correspondence and event needs.

We will practice scribing words & phrases, addressing envelopes, practice phrases for various events you may encounter (table cards, name cards, menus), all while using colored ink (which we will also cover how to mix your inks)! And finally, we will cover how to transform your calligraphy digitally using Photoshop &/or Illustrator to use in logos, invitations and everything in between.  

* If you’d like to bring your laptop to try converting files yourself during the class, feel free, but a computer is not necessary for this portion of the workshop. We’ll provide you with detailed notes on how to do so on your own. 

You will receive a personalized calligraphy starter kit, curated by Lindsey, including nibs, a nib holder, ink, practice paper, sample alphabet, and resources to continue practicing beyond the workshop. You’ll also get the chance to personalize your own stationery with your newly acquired skills. 

This workshop includes a handcrafted lunch with cocktails and other refreshments. You’ll also be meeting others who love to create, so bring your business cards and get ready to mingle! 

The class will be held at Cultureworks located at 1315 Walnut Street, Suite 320, Philadelphia, PA 19107, in the Philadelphia Building.
