If you want tips and strategies to change up your traditional lettering to something more modern that is all your own, this is the workshop for you! Designed for those familiar with traditional pointed pen calligraphy who want to explore some modern twists on lettering styles in a small class setting.  We'll go over the strategies and variables in creating a lettering style that is all your own, and then will take some short phrases and quotes to letter in your custom style! Exemplars of different modern alphabets will be provided for practice and inspiration. Participants should bring their own favorite nibs and practice ink(s), graph paper, and Canson Pro Marker or Borden and Riley Cotton Comp paper to work with.

Light snacks will be provided. BYOB. The exact address will be emailed to you with your confirmation. The location is the Historic Dilworth neighborhood in Charlotte, NC, about 5-10 minutes from the downtown area.
