Join local calligrapher, Gina Mattioli of Gina Marie Calligraphy, for a Chalkboard Calligraphy Workshop. We'll walk through the steps and techniques to begin creating your own unique style of "faux calligraphy" aka Hand lettering with some print techniques. We'll practice writing and embellishing techniques, and then we'll take your new skills to the board! You will learn how to identify the main supplies needed, chalkboard prep, letter formation, and connecting words.

Within this class, we will go over the faux calligraphy techniques on your chalkboard and in the end will go over a few different quotes to write on your board. By the end of the class, you will have a fully written chalkboard sign for you to hang up in your home! Can’t wait to see you there! Bring your BFF!
