Calligraphy for Designers at Brooklyn Brainery

Location: Prospect Heights Brainery (190 Underhill Ave in Prospect Heights, BK)

This 2-session modern calligraphy workshop was created with designers in mind! I will teach you the fundamentals of modern calligraphy, a free-form style that is all about personalizing your writing! In the first two-hour session, you will be guided through practicing the basic strokes that make up all letters, a calligraphy alphabet, and both faux and brush calligraphy.

In the second session, we will introduce dip pen calligraphy, continue honing our skills, and make holiday greeting cards. We will also discuss options for digitizing your writing for design projects!

Each student will receive a kit with markers, a dip pen with two nibs, and practice paper for you to continue your practice at home. We will also create a group message on Instagram so that we can keep in touch and share inspiration both during and after the class!

This class is for absolute beginners, and left-handers are welcome!
