In this 2-1/2 hour calligraphy session - all attendees receive a calligraphy kit and all supplies and inks are provided. We will work with pointed pens and black on layout paper, greeting cards and envelopes. Attendees will learn how to use dip calligraphy pens with black ink on paper, a completely different way of writing that will take them out of their normal comfort zone. Calligraphy is a fun and lightly challenging corporate team building activity and helps to build a sense of connection between team members but also improves motor coordination. Ultimately a daily practice of calligraphy can be both mediative as well as providing better handwriting skills which are important in today's workplace.
Attendees will practice basic lower case and upper case alphabet letters and learn how to create some fun, fancy and elegant lettering. Then they will take their cursive calligraphy to the next level by working with words and short phrases and greeting card layout. Students will also learn the instructor's favorite tips and tricks for addressing envelopes too - an important lesson in this day and age - for sending thank you and followup notes to important clients and contacts.
All students will receive a Calligraphy Kit with 1 pen holder, 1 pen nib, 1/2 oz. of black ink, practice layout paper, guidelines sheets, envelope template guide, handouts with greeting card phrases, assorted greeting cards and envelopes.
