Calligraphy 101 with Jenny Lake from A Fine Flourish

April 13, 2017 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We are so excited to have Jenny Lake from Houston as a visiting instructor. Her work has been featured in publications such as The Knot, Style Me Pretty, and Best Friends for Frosting.

This is a beginner calligraphy class for those who have never used a calligraphy pen or who are very new to the art of Modern Calligraphy! We will have 2 hours of instruction, and all supplies will be included. You will learn about the tools, how to hold your pen, make basic strokes, how to letter A Fine Flourish‘s modern alphabet in her unique curriculum style–and then you’ll put your new skills to work.

Trained in Copperplate Calligraphy, Jenny designed this alphabet based off of traditional rules with a modern twist. She teaches within similar letterforms and strokes–rather than the traditional A to Z route–because once you master a stroke and letterform, you’ll have an easier grasp at mastering the letters and words that fall within that group.

All you need to bring is yourself, and be ready to have a great time!
