Event description


MODERN CALLIGRAPHY is all the rage now! You see it everywhere -- on wedding invitations, hand-addressed envelopes, art prints, chalkboards, signage in your favorite craft store, and more.

if you would like to learn how to write in this creative, whimsical style, then join Maureen Vickery, a professional calligrapher and hand lettering artist, as she teaches the basics of MODERN CALLIGRAPHY using pointed pen. No calligraphy experience is necessary to attend!

BONUS! Students who sign up by October 22 will receive 2 additional pointed pen nibs in their curated supplies packet!

Maureen's friend and fellow calligrapher Laurie Pearson will also be on hand to help anyone who has questions during the class. We want to give you the attention you need to be successful and have an amazing experience learning new calligraphy skills!

Modern Calligraphy Quote


Is there a minimum age requirement to take the class?

This class is designed for adult learners, but parents are welcome to bring older children who have the interest, muscle control, and attention span to sit for 3 hours to learn the intricacies of pen and ink writing.

The calligraphy environment is meant to be relaxing and somewhat meditative as we practice our lettering skills.

Only paid students can be in the club house during class time.

Per MWCC rules, non-club members are NOT allowed in the pool area, playground, or other areas beyond the club house. So, in other words, do NOT bring children or other family members with the expectation that they will be able to hang around outside while you are in class.

What are parking options for the event?

Parking is available in front of the MWCC club house. If for some reason the MWCC parking lot is full, there is a shopping center across the street where parking may be available, or worst case scenario would be parking on the neighborhood street just north of the club.

What can I bring into the event?

You can bring calligraphy supplies, food, and drink. We will have water and snacks available.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Maureen's email is classes@pendancestudio.com. PenDance Studio's phone is 281-558-7856.

What's the refund policy?

Refunds are allowed up to 24 hours before the event starts.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, but have your ID and we will check you in with the EventBrite app.

Will you have a waitlist in case the class sells out?

Yes, we will have a wait list and notify students immediately of any openings that occur.

We have the capacity to hold up to 30 students, but would prefer to cap it at 24.

If friends want to sign up together and the class is almost or completely sold out, please email Maureen at classes@pendancestudio.com and she will see about accommodating you.
