Mastering Modern Calligraphy Workshop

This brand new workshop is all about exploring modern calligraphy styles. Inspired by my forthcoming book, Mastering Modern Calligraphy (October 2019), the targeted lesson plan will push you to experiment in ways you never have before. Emphasis will be placed on playing with letterforms (upper and lowercase), mastering flourished layout designs, and creating your very own modern calligraphy style.

The exercises I teach will push you out of your “calligraphy comfort zone” to break old habits you dislike and lay the foundation for new and improved ones. You will walk away with the tools you need for highly effective practice, including how to review your own work with an unbiased, trained eye.

Whether you've taught yourself or learned from a teacher, if you can write with a pointed calligraphy pen, then this class is right for you! It doesn’t matter if your experience is extensive, or whether it’s in modern or traditional styles. (If you've ever taken one of my beginner workshops then you definitely qualify.) Students with a basis in Copperplate might find this class extremely useful for learning about breaking rules with intention, and merging traditional with modern.

If you’re unsure whether this class is right for you, please email me ( a little background on your experience with pointed pen calligraphy.

All the supplies you'll need for the workshop, including a beautifully-packaged supply kit and my very own letter guide booklet, are included in the ticket price.

What my students are saying:

“Molly is a superb teacher who will keep you captivated from beginning to end. Seldom have I had the pleasure of listening to someone teach with the degree of fluency which Molly seems so naturally to possess.”
— Sallie B.

“I traveled halfway across the country to take a beginner workshop from Molly and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Molly was a wonderful, encouraging teacher, and offered so many materials and helpful tips."
— Syd S.

"There is absolutely no substitute for the instruction and hands-on practice in Molly's calligraphy classes. I took both the Beginner and Early Intermediate classes. Molly shared her calligraphy wisdom and experience, patiently watched each of us practice our lettering, and provided invaluable feedback on our technique."
—Yelena A.

“The personalized kits were awesome — I could keep practicing at home for a long time before restocking.”
— Anna T.
