Private Intro to Calligraphy event with FitzGerald PTO

November 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm-9:00 pm EST


Join us at Shoppers Cafe in Waltham, MA for a festive workshop of thankful fun and pretty lettering for beginners! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, parent who wants to jazz up their children’s birthday cards, 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 send out some holiday snail mail this season!

Class includes 1.5 hours of instruction and demonstration with Julie Mancini, the co-founder of Sip & Script and a 4th grade Fitzgerald Elementary mom, 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 workshop!

We are offering a discounted price of $45.00 per ticket, and a part of the proceeds will be donated back to the FitzGerald PTO.

Feel free to come early to check in, grab your seat, and purchase any food (food and drinks available to purchase throughout class too!). You are welcome to arrive at 7pm to find a spot and purchase a drink or app, and class will begin promptly at 7:30pm.

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!
