Whether you simply want to address your holiday cards or use calligraphy to style your upcoming wedding- a private workshop is the perfect place to start. Smaller classes ensure more one on one assistance, we can work in a space that is comfortable for you and a group of friends/family. Book a private workshop for a girls night out, a special time with family and friends or perhaps as a holiday gift experience.
The possibilities are absolutely endless with this skill. From simple place cards and beautifully addresses envelopes, calligraphy has so many applications. 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 - I feel strongly about handmade, simple and elegant…and calligraphy is just that. My goal is to get students started out with correct techniques, quality supply recommendations and a thorough understanding of the fundamentals.
The workshop experience is hands on- while I explain and demonstrate techniques and guide you through the alphabet from A to Z. You're encouraged to find your own personal lettering style and with practice and motivation you can become more comfortable and fluent as a calligrapher. You'll be provided with a tool kit of high quality, beginner-friendly tools and supplies. Your kit of supplies will take you through hours of practice as you develop your new skill.
How it Works:
I arrive at your venue with my exclusive Work Box kits in tow and a ton of enthusiasm for sharing my love for calligraphy with you and at least five friends. I'll teach your gang the beginner-basics class and share all my tips and tricks. The course covers all tools, foundations and fundamentals. We cover the entire lowercase alphabet and the basics of capitals. The class time is a maximum of 3 hrs. (For the price listed I can travel up to 50 miles one way. Any additional mileage would require a slight adjustment in the fee. I can host the workshop in my home studio if you do not have available space.)
CLASS MINIMUM: 5 Students
$85 per student (pre-payment required)
I'm open to other options as well! Please email me if you have any interest in scheduling a workshop. A private workshop is a great gift for friends, family or co-workers during the Holiday Season! Also a great team-building experience. Have a question? Email Janna!
Hi I’m Janna! I’ve been teaching creative workshops for almost fourteen 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 four years ago and I’m self taught through many hours of practice, classes, readings and trial and error. I’m excited to share the basics of this fun hobby through private workshops and monthly workshops at Shindig Paperie (pictured below) in Fayetteville, Arkansas!
