Foodies & Friends DMV: Saturday Beginner Calligraphy at Assembly VA

September 2, 2023 @ 1:30 pm-3:00 pm EDT


Join Sip & Script® for an Afternoon of Learning Calligraphy!

Join us at Assembly (VA) in Arlington, Virginia (Rosslyn) for beautiful lettering! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY Bride / Groom-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 afternoon out! If you are a foodie you will love this event in a modern food hall with delectable bites from a variety of cuisine options.

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 workshop!

Parking & Transportation:

This venue is Metro Accessible! Garage parking is also available within the building. If parking within the garage, please park on levels G1, G2, G4, G5, or G6 and take elevators to “M2.” This will get you directly into Assembly.  The garage entrance is at 1700 N. Moore St., Arlington, VA 22209, next to Chase Bank. There is an $8.00 flat rate to park on Saturdays. If planning to take the metro, please exit at the Rosslyn Metro station and take the escalator or elevator up to M2, where Assembly/the event is located. Assembly is located directly above the Rosslyn Metro station. On event day there will be floor signage to assist you to the correct room assignment.

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.
