Event description

Description

Join us for a fun evening learning calligraphy! This is an intermediate contemporary calligraphy workshop, ideal for those who:

- Have taken our Contemporary Calligraphy- Level 1 Workshop OR

- Purchased the Paper Trails Design Co. Calligraphy Kit starter set OR

- Know the basics of using a pen, nibs and forming letters.

In this class, we will go through capital letter variations, understand spacing of letters & words, and work on developing different calligraphy styles. We will work on a small project so you will have a finished work to take home!

Supplies

You will need to bring a penholder and your favourite nibs, but we will provide you with some extra nibs, ink, a practice pad, and guidesheets! We will also have some extra supplies that you can purchase at the workshop.

The class size is limited, so there will be a lot of time for individual instruction.

Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

FAQs

What style is 'contemporary' calligraphy?

Contemporary calligraphy is the fusion of traditional copperplate calligraphy and modern calligraphy. In my own calligraphy journey, I first attempted modern calligraphy with a pointed pen and found it difficult to keep my style consistent. I found that learning the rules and techniques in traditional copperplate, while also being a wonderfully meditative practice, provides a great foundation for when you break all the rules and create your own contemporary style!


I'm a beginner. Can I still take this class?

If you haven't attempted calligraphy before, please sign up for one of our beginner courses. We will not be covering the basics in this class, and a beginner level of understanding is expected. If you're not sure where you stand, please email hello@papertrailsdesign.com and we would be happy to help you out!


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email us at hello@papertrailsdesign.com


What's the refund policy?

There's a 50% refund available until two weeks before the event, after which there will be no refund as supplies will already be purchased. Please email us with any questions or concerns!


Can I update my registration information?

Definitely!
