      The Experience

      This 3-hour workshop will teach you the fundamentals of modern calligraphy, a free-form calligraphy style that is all about personalizing your writing. You will be guided through practicing the basic strokes that make up all letters, a calligraphy alphabet, and both faux and brush calligraphy. Each student will receive a kit with markers and practice paper for you to continue your practice at home. You will also have the opportunity to test out different types of markers to find your best fit for further study. In addition to brush calligraphy, you will have an exclusive tutorial on heat embossing, a method that gives the text a luxurious feel by making it both shiny and textured.
