Modern Calligraphy + Driftwood Sign Lettering for Beginners at Flatfish Cottage

July 17 @ 6:30 pm-8:00 pm EDT


Join Sip & ScriptⓇ for Modern Calligraphy Fun!

Join us at Flatfish Cottage in Wickford, Rhode Island for a summer evening of pretty lettering! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY bride-to-be, or just a crafty individual, this workshop will introduce you to modern calligraphy with a pointed dip pen as well as the basics of “fauxligraphy” with a standard pen/marker. We will cover all the basics and prepare you to add those unique lettered details to your snail mail, wedding & gifting paper goods, home decor, and more. It’s the perfect craft 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 workshop! This specific workshop will also include instruction on multi-surface lettering, with an end-of-class project of lettering on your own driftwood whale!  

Flatfish Cottage is a coastal inspired and craft-forward boutique shop in historic Wickford Village, Rhode Island. Check out their website and say hey on Instagram to learn more.

Feel free to come early, grab your seat, and take a look around the store.  The class will start promptly at 6:30 pm

Class Expectations: Yes, lefties are welcome! Your instructor for this class is a lefty herself, so you are in good “hands.” 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, with a brand-new end-of-class project: driftwood lettering!

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 if you are comfortable with people around them having a drink or two. We ask that a ticketed adult accompany anyone under the age of 16 at all times.

This class is priced higher than our typical modern calligraphy classes as it includes your driftwood whale that is yours to keep at the end of class, as well as additional instruction on multi-surface lettering! To see our cancellation/refund policy, please click here.
