Cheese & Calligraphy for Beginners in Livermore
September 28 @ 6:30 pm-8:00 pm PDT$65.00
Join us at The Cheese Parlor in Livermore, California for a night of wine, local brews, cheese, and pretty lettering! 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 your snail mail, wedding paper goods, home decor and more! The perfect crafty night out!
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. Everything is yours to keep at the end of the night!
Cheese lovers: If you would like to order a cheese plate or box to eat before the class starts, they will be available 30 minutes early at 6:00 pm. You’ll want to finish your platter before class starts, as space is limited at the workspaces. You can sip your wine and local ciders and beers throughout the class! Class will start promptly at 6:30 pm.

Class Expectations: 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!
