Modern Calligraphy Workshop for Beginners in BACK BAY / Boston

Discover a new creative outlet that is meditative, relaxing and practical!  Enjoy learning from a pro lettering artist with over 30 yrs experience, in this small group workshop designed for beginners, to get people inspired about the joy of calligraphy.

During this "no experience required" class, Liz Roessler of Lettering By Liz teaches students the fundamentals of the fine art of modern pointed pen calligraphy with a dip pen & acrylic ink.  She focuses the two-hour class on easy-to-understand, interactive instruction on everything you need to get started. This includes the proper way to load/hold the pen, ritual of dipping into ink, healthy ergonomics, warming up with fun drills on basic movements, and then guiding students through a complete alphabet with numbered strokes, all while circulating & offering 1-on-1 guidance.  Students receive clear recommendations and suggested goals for personal practice following class, dozens of cool ideas for using their new calligraphy skills, Q&A throughout, plus on-going follow-up mentoring is available individually after the workshop via email/text.

All class materials (pens/nibs/inks) are included in your registration fee as well as a generous take-home package / starter kit to continue your practice and enjoyment of calligraphy at home! 

Students receive both in-class print-outs & post-class emailed PDF's of comprehensive practice materials including 5 complete lettering styles (exemplars of 3 scripts & 2 block/print styles), a collection of worksheets with common words & seasonal / celebration phrases, several styles and sizes of blank gridline sheets, and a detailed supplies list with both local / online sources to purchase additional materials. 

Bring a favorite quote or mantra with you to class and leave with a piece of ready-to-frame lettering art.
