Modern Calligraphy for Beginners & Pumpkin Lettering at Black Sheep Coffee & Crepes
September 16 @ 6:00 pm-7:30 pm MDT$70.00
Join Sip & Script® for a Night of Learning Calligraphy!
Join us at Blacksheep Coffee & Crepes in Johnstown, CO for a festive night of spooky fun 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 all your spooky spreads – think lettered pumpkins at your front door, on your bar cart, as a Halloween party hostess gift or special occasion gift!
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!
Additionally, we will be lettering on faux pumpkins at the end of our class time! I will provide a faux mini-pumpkin for you to keep, and sharpies for you to use during class to letter your pumpkins. You’ll learn the fundamentals of lettering during the first 70 minutes of class, and we’ll spend the last 20 minutes applying those techniques to faux-calligraphy on your cute lil’ mini pumpkins!
Get your tickets below!
Feel free to come early to check in, grab your seat, and order any food (food and drinks available to order throughout class too!). Class will start promptly at 6:00PM!
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.
