Cocktails and Calligraphy: Learn Modern Calligraphy for Beginners at Bookmakers Baltimore, MD
It’s time for another modern calligraphy workshop! Workshops are my absolute favorite because I get to meet new calligraphers and share my own secrets, tips, and tricks when starting out. When I first started practicing calligraphy, I ordered a beginners kit off of the internet without knowing a whole lot about calligraphy in general. I am totally self taught and was instantly frustrated by the materials in my starter kit and lack of instruction. After doing way more research and practice, I learned how important good tools are for new calligraphers and decided to put together my own beginners kit and launch a workshop series. The workshops are so fun and attendees receive a beginners kit with the same products I use daily…and a cocktail to taste of course. The next workshop is scheduled for April 4, 2019 at Bookmakers in Baltimore. Tickets are available here and discounted when you purchase with a friend. Hope to see you there!
Join Nikki from Shotgunning for Love Letters at Bookmakers in Baltimore, MD on 4/4/19 for a 1.5 hour introductory modern calligraphy class and artisan crafted cocktail tasting. This class is designed for beginners as well as those looking to enhance their calligraphy skills or pick up a new hobby. Students can enjoy a crafted cocktail from Bookmakers while learning calligraphy basics such as practice strokes, pressure, technique, and tips directly from a calligrapher. First time students will receive a curated calligraphy starter kit made up of quality tested tools to take home and kick start a new hobby. Starter kits include: a nib, nib holder, practice sheets, black ink, an inkwell, and practice guide. Return students will receive a kit with new nibs to try, metallic inks, handmade papers, and a new instruction book with a mix of flourished and organic calligraphy styles. Return student kits do NOT include a pen. You may only register as a return student if you’ve taken my class before.
