I love to teach.
To date, I have taught over 700 students at my workshops, private lessons, and lectures around the United States and Europe.
I can adapt my teaching to large or small groups but always emphasize giving lots of individual attention. If you're interested in having me come to your school, your conference, your shop, or anywhere else, please contact me – I love to travel!
I have also been a guest lecturer on graphic design and its intersection with hand lettering at The University of Southern California’s Roski School of Fine Arts and The University of California at Los Angeles’s Design Communication Arts department.
All my workshops are hands-on using traditional materials. Students receive a beautifully-packaged deluxe supply kit and Plurabelle's own 44-page letter guide booklet. Read what former students have to say about their experience below.
Absolutely no previous calligraphy experience is required. I cover all the basics of modern script calligraphy, from holding the pen to writing the complete lowercase alphabet. 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!
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. You do not need to have years of experience. This class covers some of modern calligraphy's most fun, popular techniques with emphasis placed on connecting letters, plotting layouts, and playing with letterforms.
