Los Angeles Beginner Workshop

Not much is cozier for me than spending an evening with my calligraphy pen and cup of coffee. If this sounds like a winning combination to you too, then join me for a nighttime, Beginner Level Calligraphy Workshop at Alfred Coffee + Kitchen.

In this 3-hour class, you will learn the basics of modern script calligraphy, from holding the pen to writing the complete lowercase alphabet. Absolutely no previous calligraphy experience is required! The workshop is hands-on using all the traditional materials such as pointed nibs, pen holders and ink.

All the supplies you'll need for the workshop, including a take-home kit and packet of letter samples, are included in the ticket price. The supplies you'll receive include:

  • 2 pen nibs
  • 1 straight pen holder
  • 1 oblique pen holder
  • 1 pad of quality paper
  • 1 jar of black ink
  • A sampler with practice strokes and letter specimens
  • A handout of recommended suppliers and other resources
  • As with all my workshops, I'm only booking it for a very small class (which means lots of individual attention!), so I expect the spaces to fill up quickly.

Complimentary espresso drinks, tea, and pastries will be provided by Alfred Coffee + Kitchen. We'll have our own personal barista all evening and indulge in a pastry case stocked with treats!
