U.S. Summer Workshop Tour

 

Registration is now open for Modern Calligraphy Workshops in California, Massachusetts, and Maine! Beginner and Intermediate level classes offered.

 

My Modern Calligraphy Workshops are hands-on, using traditional calligraphy materials such as pointed nibs, pen holders and ink. All the supplies you'll need, including a beautifully-packaged kit and Plurabelle's own Letter Specimen Handbook & Resource Guide for you to keep, are included in the ticket price.

For my Beginner Workshops, absolutely no previous calligraphy experience is required. Whether you will be picking up a calligraphy pen for the very first time or are seeking hands-on instruction to enhance your existing, beginner-level calligraphy skills, this class is right for you!

In my Intermediate Workshops, whether you've taught yourself or learned from a teacher, if you can hold a calligraphy pen and write full words then this class is right for you! (If you've ever taken one of my beginner workshops then you definitely qualify.) Intermediate classes focus on writing with gouache, calligraphy’s most versatile color medium, and how to achieve opaque white lettering on dark paper. Emphasis will be placed on refining and playing with letterforms – both upper and lowercase – with guidance on how to create your own unique style. I will also discuss troubleshooting techniques for common issues faced by working calligraphers.
