Modern Calligraphy for Beginners

November 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Cody Calligraphy’s signature workshop, Brush Calligraphy for Beginners is the best starting point for those who are interested in modern calligraphy, but aren’t quite sure where to begin. Your ticket includes 2.5 hours of guided instruction, coffee/tea at Maker Bean Cafe, and a free calligraphy starter kit including a brush pen and other tools you need to get started.

Who should take this workshop?

  • DIY enthusiasts who want to add personalization to gifts, dinner parties, snail mail, the list goes on!
  • engaged folks who want to make their own wedding place cards & stationery.
  • friends who want to get together for a coffee or tea and learn a fun new skill.
  • humans who are bad at meditating and could benefit from a structured mindfulness practice.

We’ll spend the first part of class mastering the basic strokes that make up the entire English alphabet, with a focus on lowercase letters. We’ll combine the basic strokes into letterforms, words and sentences! Tips & tricks on common calligraphy projects (such as place cards) will also be shared, along with tips on how to hold your brush pen and set up your workspace.

This class is for beginners – no experience necessary, and left-handed instruction is also available!

Come as you are – all are welcome.
