Introduction to Modern Calligraphy at Detroit Shipping Company
August 1 @ 6:00 pm-7:30 pm EDT$65.00
Join us at Detroit Shipping Company in Detroit, Michigan for a night of cocktails 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!

Feel free to come early to check in, grab your seat, and order any drinks (drinks are available to order throughout class too!). Class will start promptly at 6pm! While there will be a bartender on hand for drinks, the restaurants inside the venue will not be open during class, but you can bring your own snacks or even ordering in from somewhere else is encouraged!
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!
