Beginner Calligraphy for the Holidays at Oaken Bar + Bistro

November 30, 2023 @ 6:30 pm-8:00 pm CST


Join Sip & Script® for a Night of Learning Calligraphy perfect for the holidays!

Join us at  Oaken Bar + Bistro  in Lake Forest, IL for a festive workshop of  pretty lettering for beginners! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY Bride-to-be, or just a crafty individual, in this workshop you’ll be learning an introduction to modern calligraphy with a pointed dip pen and ink. We will cover all the basics and get you ready to add those special lettered details to all your  holiday tables for place cards, menus, gift tags, bar carts and more!

Class includes 1.5 hours of instruction and demonstration, our beginner’s calligraphy kit (two nibs, black ink pot, 2 letter guides, tracing paper and straight pen holder), and all materials to write on including additional materials for gift tags and envelopes. Everything is yours to keep at the end of the workshop!

*Feel free to come early and make a reservation  for dinner (or stay after for dinner) and mention you’re apart of the Sip and Script class for a complimentary percentage off  your food order. Drinks and food will be available throughout class to order.

Class will start promptly at 6:35PM

Class Expectations: Yes, lefties are welcome too! This class is encouraged for someone who has never taken a calligraphy class before. We teach the basics and our expectation for you is to have ink flowing through your nib with enough confidence to be able to practice way beyond class. We love using tracing paper with our guides to help you build muscle memory and develop your own style!  If you have tried calligraphy out before, this class will be a great refresher and hopefully a chance to try some new supplies from our beginner kit that will re-introduce you to this lovely form of art!

A note on bringing guests 16 and under: We love to share this passion with kids. You are welcome to get a ticket for your child as long as you are comfortable with people around them having a drink or two. We do ask that anyone under the age of 16 is to be accompanied by a ticketed adult at all times.
