Whether you simply want to address pretty mail or use calligraphy to style your upcoming wedding- this workshop is the perfect place to start. The possibilities are absolutely endless with this skill. Modern calligraphy is the neo-traditionalist hobby that is attainable for anyone with the motivation and the right tool kit to get started successfully! I'm so excited to share my knowledge of the craft with others at Inscriptions. You'll be provided with a tool kit of high quality, beginner-friendly tools and supplies. The 2 1/2 hour workshop experience will be hands on- while I explain and demonstrate techniques and guide you through getting comfortable with the pen and the strokes you will need to find success in making beautiful calligraphy. Your kit of supplies will take you through hours of practice as you develop your new skill.

Hi I’m Janna! I’ve been teaching creative workshops for thirteen years both locally, nationally and for major craft manufacturers and publications such as Fiskars and Better Homes and Gardens' craft titles. Incidentally, creative lettering was one of the first classes I taught all those years ago at a scrapbook store in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Over the years, I’ve continued to develop my lettering skills and I’m now able to use them in my graphic design work and commissioned works. I started with pointed pen calligraphy about three years ago and I’m self taught through many hours of practice, classes, readings, study and trial and error. I’m excited to share the basics of this fun hobby through workshops at some of my favorite local boutiques.
