Join Nikki from Shotgunning for Love Letters at Bookmakers in Baltimore, MD on 4/4/19 for a 1.5 hour introductory modern calligraphy class and artisan crafted cocktail tasting. This class is designed for beginners as well as those looking to enhance their calligraphy skills or pick up a new hobby. Students can enjoy a crafted cocktail from Bookmakers while learning calligraphy basics such as practice strokes, pressure, technique, and tips directly from a calligrapher. First time students will receive a curated calligraphy starter kit made up of quality tested tools to take home and kick start a new hobby. Starter kits include: a nib, nib holder, practice sheets, black ink, an inkwell, and practice guide. Return students will receive a kit with new nibs to try, metallic inks, handmade papers, and a new instruction book with a mix of flourished and organic calligraphy styles. Return student kits do NOT include a pen. You may only register as a return student if you’ve taken my class before.
