Hey y’all! My name is Shannon Smith, of Handwritten Treasures Calligraphy Co. (@handwrittentreasures), based out of central Virginia. I started learning calligraphy in 2018 after stumbling across a video on Facebook and thought “that looks easy, I can totally do that!” And then I quickly realized it was not as easy as I thought! I love the idea and the thought that goes into handmade gifts, and the sentimental value attached to it. It was that spark that made me realize, that is the feeling I want to give with my calligraphy. To be able to make something that is uniquely special to you, that you treasure and are proud to show off to everyone you know. I’m so excited to share my love of calligraphy with others! When not doing calligraphy, you can find me playing volleyball, reading a good book, drinking tea, or wondering why I still haven’t received my Hogwarts letter.
Looking forward to seeing you in class and spreading some calligraphy love!
