Modern Pointed Pen Calligraphy with Liz Roessler

This is a small group workshop designed for beginning enthusiasts, to get people inspired about the joy of calligraphy in a relaxed, comfortable studio setting. Liz will teach the basics of the traditional technique of dipping a steel-nibbed pen into a bottle of liquid acrylic ink, introducing you to her favorite beginner’s lettering style “Romantic” – her creative interpretation of Copperplate…with a modern twist!

Maximum class size: 12
