This gift certificate entitles the bearer to one brush lettering class taught by Kristen Ashley.
This class includes two brush pens for you to take home!
If you have never used a pointed dip pen (the one we use in our Modern Calligraphy class), but want to jump right in with brush lettering, you are welcome to join us too! All skill levels welcome.
We will start class by reviewing the basics of modern calligraphy, focusing on building our own personal alphabets. Using pencil and paper (we'll provide this for you) -- or using your own dip pen and ink (if you prefer to practice with your own materials) -- we'll go through the alphabet, discussing various ways to create each letter. We'll go over numbers and flourishes as well. And all throughout, I'll answer any questions you may have about envelope addressing, digitizing your work, etc.
After running through the alphabet, we will go over the basic mechanics of brush lettering. I'll provide an assortment of materials for you to try. You are also encouraged to bring any pens you already own if you'd like any instruction with those. Fall in love with a pen we use in class? You can purchase any of them from our supply shop.
The recipient can use their certificate number to register for any available class by calling or emailing us to reserve their spot.
Please note if you would like us to send the certificate directly to your recipient. We can write a little note on the back, letting them know who it's from. Otherwise, we will mail the certificate to your shipping address. In-store pick-up is also an option at check-out (and it's free)!
Certificates measure 5"x7" and come in beautiful gold envelopes. They make perfect gifts for the budding calligraphers in your life.
