Private Calligraphy Class - with Kristen Ashley
Private classes are a great way to learn and have fun with your friends! I'm happy to teach one-on-one, focusing on whatever you are interested in learning. We also love parties and can host any type of celebration or group. Our cheery workshop seats up to 12, with room for things like presents and cupcakes on a side table.
I custom design each class to fit the students' experience level and interests. In a beginners' class, we usually go over:
- what is modern calligraphy?
- the materials and how to use them
- basic practice strokes
- how to form letters and words and phrases
- using different inks, papers, and nibs
- "fake calligraphy" with normal pens and brush markers
- various applications, like envelopes or chalkboards
For more experienced calligraphers, we'll try out the metallic watercolors, use a variety of nibs, and discuss more in-depth how to create our own signature alphabets. Just let me know what you'd like to learn!
A typical class lasts 2 hours and can be scheduled when you want it, any day of the week, between the hours of 11am and 10pm. We ask for 2 weeks advance notice, and dates and times are subject to availability. Planning your event far in advance is preferred, but we will do our best to accommodate you, no matter your situation.
You can extend your event by renting the workspace either before or after you class, at the rate of $30/hour.
