Join local calligrapher, Gina Mattioli of Gina Marie Calligraphy, for an intermediate calligraphy workshop - a spin-off of Calligraphy 1.0 for beginners.  Please note- this is for anyone who has taken 1.0. We will be using the basic tools that were given in 1.0.

We'll walk through the steps and techniques to continue the creation of your own unique style of calligraphy using a pointed pen. We will continue to learn and work on connecting letter, add a "bounce" to your letter formation, go over envelope addressing, basic flourishes, mixing white ink, working with metallic ink, and composition. 

You will receive a full beginners kit that will include:

  • A specially curated class booklet for you to be able to practice and learn

  • additional nibs

  • ink (both metallic and white) 

  • lettermate addressing stencil

  • refreshments and snacks 

  • a full online repository for you to download and continue to learn from when you are home!

*** Please note - you will be asked to bring your nib holder from last time. I will have some extras for use if you forget yours and will have additional straight and oblique holders for purchase***
