handwriting penmanship calligraphy workshop class dallas

This is a traditional penmanship class: one that will teach you how to write with the grace of our grandmothers or great grandmothers. To slow down and think about each letter and each word and make them count to make a meaningful statement that the recipient will enjoy reading. We spend some quality time on the foundations: doing warm up drills and learning the basic hand motions. Lower case and capital letters are covered in this class so you can leave able to write beautiful notes and letters. We go over the structure of connecting letters, making words, writing sentences and how to write a traditional letter (by hand!). Everyone gets a one-on-one progress review to help work out any trouble areas. For those afraid you will forget what we have learned — a wonderful class booklet is provided along with a pen, notepad and pencils. We end the class with a pen round table where the participants get to test out different pens to find their favorite… because what works for your neighbor may not be your favorite.

Classes will be held at the Blue House Gallery:

Mexico Destination Wedding – Modern Calligraphy – Real Wedding

Last year is had the joy of working with this lovely family on all aspects of a fun and joyful Mexican destination wedding.  They chose to use the Bella Figura Barcelona invitation in a stunning cobalt blue and coral pink.  Can we just stop there.  These colors were amazing to work with!  I provided calligraphy in my mitty script for their names and a few other spots on the invitation suite as well as the menus.

Menus – are the tables just so festive and happy?!  Love them.

The escort cards were so pretty strung out in the open.  We used different colors to indicate meal choices and double as a place card at the table.
