Calligraphy adds creative flair to parties, invitations, correspondence, decorations, art projects, and more. Discover how to master this ancient art form in our class, Basic Calligraphy with Anita Hendrickx.

Anita will teach you to the foundational script by introducing you to the Roman alphabet one letter at a time. You’ll learn how to hold a chisel tipped calligraphy marker to create the thick and thin lines within each letter form that are characteristic of calligraphy. Anita will push you beyond handwriting to explore your hands own unique expression.

We will discuss composition, spacing and color as decorative elements are added to further enhance your text. Explore the use of hand drawn embellishment, pressed leaves and flowers, as well as gold embossing powder.

Go home with a beautifully calligraphed word or short phrase illuminated with the embellishment of your choice.
You will leave you feeling encouraged and confident as a new calligrapher.

If you want to add special a flourish to your handwritten projects, Basic Calligraphy is the perfect place to start.
