Private Event: Beginner Calligraphy for Maine Wedding Vendors
January 26 @ 5:00 pm-7:30 pm EST$69.00
Join Sip & Script® for a Night of Learning Calligraphy!
Join us at Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland, ME for a night of beginner’s modern calligraphy instruction, wedding industry networking, and locally made craft drinks. All current and aspiring wedding vendors are welcome and no calligraphy experience is required. This will be a private event and will include opportunities for meeting and networking with other industry professionals.
Open networking will begin at 5:00pm and the calligraphy class will start promptly at 6:00pm and end at 7:30pm. Feel free to arrive any time between 5:00-5:50pm.
If you have ever been inspired by the calligraphy on custom stationery and signage at weddings and thought, I want to try that one day, this is your opportunity! Kick off the new year with a new creative hobby and some new local industry friends. In this workshop you’ll be learning an introduction to modern calligraphy with a pointed dip pen and ink. 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 workshop!
Our host is Lauren from Hemlock Ridge Designs, a local wedding calligrapher and designer who has taught beginner’s calligraphy to hundreds of students across New England.
Snacks will be available for purchase from local food vendors and drinks will be available for purchase from Urban Farm. In addition, you are welcome to bring your own food, but please do not bring your own drinks.

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!
