Intro to Modern Calligraphy at Hops N Shine
July 26 @ 5:30 pm-7:00 pm EDT$72.00
Join us at Hops N Shine in Alexandria, VA for an evening of good beer and pretty lettering! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY bride-to-be, or just a crafty individual, this workshop will provide 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, and home decor.
Class includes 1.5 hours of instruction and demonstration by peach & paperie, our beginner’s calligraphy kit (two nibs, black ink pot, 2 letter guides, tracing paper, and straight pen holder), and all the instructor guidance you need. Your ticket also includes one beer or house wine to enjoy during class. All materials are yours to take home at the end of the evening.

*Feel free to come early to check-in, grab your seat, and order drinks and food to enjoy during class. Class will start promptly at 5:30 pm.
Class Expectations: This class is encouraged for someone who has never taken a calligraphy class before. We teach the basics and our expectations 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 into this lovely form of art!
