February 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$65.00
Have you wanted to learn modern calligraphy so you can pen beautiful letters and unlock your creativity? Join us on Saturday, Feb. 1st at 11 am for a creative workshop at Curate Mercantile in Centennial, CO. This workshop is the perfect beginning to modern calligraphy taking you step-by-step through the strokes necessary to create upper and lower-case letters using a traditional nib and ink. Pointed pen calligraphy has become so popular in the last few years because it is steeped in tradition, yet the lettering style has become more relaxed.
You will learn the tips and techniques that make a dip pen and ink successful. We will practice letters and then words after you gain confidence. Renée Reese, owner of Hopscotch Art, will share her favorite nib, papers, and ink with you! You may become addicted to this meditative practice. You’ll also create a Valentine and a birthday card during this workshop so that you can share your talents with others!
When: Saturday, February 1 , 2020 from 11:00 am to 1 pm
Price + Materials: Included in your workshop fee is a kit already assembled (bought at the lowest price) for you to use in class and continue your lettering at home. It will include practice sheets, upper and lower-case letter guides, vellum paper, nib, and nib holder. Your workshop includes ticket, kit, light snack and sparkling beverage. $65 per person includes all materials.
About Your Instructor: Renée Reese is the artist behind ‘Hopscotch Art’ paintings, calligraphy and greeting cards, which are featured at Curate Mercantile at the front of our shop. It brings her great joy to share her talents with others so that they can create their own masterpieces! You’ll love her cheerful attitude and helpful encouragement.
