Embossing & Calligraphy Workshop at Court Tree Collective - Sponsored by Rhodia

  • Court Tree Collective 371 Court Street Brooklyn, NY, 11231 United States (map)

Create your own one-of-a-kind journal with heat embossing! Join me in learning the principles behind brush calligraphy and heat embossing. These techniques are sure to help you take your writing to the next level! 

Embossing is a process that adheres text to the page, making it shiny and giving it a raised texture. Since each piece must be created individually, every embossed journal or notecard is entirely unique! Pair embossing with modern calligraphy for a truly personalized keepsake.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn the basics of brush calligraphy, including the 8 basic strokes that make up all letters

  • Practice writing letters and words using both brush and faux calligraphy styles

  • Use heat embossing to customize your own Moleskine journal!

  • Get the inside scoop on tips and tricks to make your embossing really shine.

Your workshop supplies include:

  • A full size Rhodia Dot Pad for you to use during class and take home for further practice. Rhodia paper is very smooth and perfect for calligraphy. Thank you to our sponsor Rhodia for donating these!

  • A Moleskine journal for your final project

  • Additional notecards and card stock for more embossing fun!

  • Worksheets with a practice alphabet and a resources list for further study

  • Pens and markers for you to practice with during the session
