Workshop Announcements & Glimpses Behind the Scenes

Los Angeles Library Workshop

Join me for a Saturday morning, Beginner’s Workshop in modern, script calligraphy at the beautiful Pilibos School Library.

This class is four hours long instead of the usual three-hour classes I teach, and will cover all the basics of modern script calligraphy, from holding the pen to writing the complete lowercase alphabet. Absolutely no previous calligraphy experience is required! The workshop is hands-on using all the traditional materials such as pointed nibs, pen holders and ink.

In this 3-hour class, you will learn the basics of modern script calligraphy, from holding the pen to writing the complete lowercase alphabet. Absolutely no previous calligraphy experience is required! The workshop is hands-on using all the traditional materials such as pointed nibs, pen holders and ink.

All the supplies you'll need for the workshop, including a take-home kit and packet of letter samples, are included in the ticket price. The supplies you'll receive include:

  • 2 pen nibs
  • 1 straight pen holder
  • 1 oblique pen holder
  • 1 pad of quality paper
  • 1 jar of black ink
  • A sampler with practice strokes and letter specimens
  • A handout of recommended suppliers and other resources

As with all my workshops, I'm only booking it for a very small class (which means lots of individual attention!), so I expect the spaces to fill up quickly.

Coffee, hot cocoa, and other light refreshments will be served.
