The Basics of Calligraphy Workshop

At the Ashley Buzzy Lettering Workshop, you'll learn the basics of typography, calligraphy and hand-lettering, get plenty of supervised practice time and learn how to bring your designs into the computer for digital editing.We'll also be covering how to mix and use gouache and watercolors so you can use white, metallic and colored inks in your projects.

All skill levels are welcome! Every student gets one-on-one time to discuss troubleshooting techniques, further investigate their personal style and develop what makes their "hand" unique.

This class is offered in one section, which includes a full supply kit, light snacks and drinks:

SECTION 1 ($300)

Learn the basics of hand-lettering and calligraphy: the creation of letterforms, learning how to use various materials (pencil, pen, marker, ink and nibs), embracing and polishing your own style, and practicing the composition of phrases. 

Learn how to convert your finished compositions into computer files. Learn how to apply these designs to images for facebook, instagram and blogs! 


Basic supplies for this class are provided! You will get: a sketchpad, brush markers, a pen holder, assorted nibs, containers of ink, pencils,  and always a few surprise goodies! (This kit is valued at appx. $100)

Coffee and snacks will offer you a chance to get up and stretch your legs. We'll also have a signature cocktail because anything after 5pm should have a cocktail.

Cadence Kennedy will be photographing the evening.
