Hand Lettering

Upcoming Event :: Calligraphy Brunch

You guys, it has been too long since we did a workshop! We are super psyched to host this Calligraphy Brunch we're hosting with Lindsey of The Hive Studio! It'll be at the Powel House in Philly from 11a–2p on Sunday, July 19. Purchase tickets here.

Lindsey will teach foundational calligraphy skills, including the anatomy of the pen and how to hold it, dipping ink, and scribing the alphabet while you sip sangria and munch on light fare. You'll start with lots of practice!

During the second half of the workshop, you'll put your skills to use by creating your very own 8x10" calligraphy art, using the quote or short phrase of your choice — the perfect inspiration piece for your studio, a sweet love note for your honey, or a bridesmaid gift for your bestie.

Each student will receive The Hive Studio Calligraphy Kit to use during class & take home to practice — you don't need to bring a thing!

  • The Hive Studio calligraphy kit 
    • 2 nibs
    • nib holder
    • ink well and black ink
    • tube of gouache paint to mix your own ink
