Brush Calligraphy Workshops at a Brand New Venue [Highlights]

Most of the time, I like to schedule my modern calligraphy workshops 3-4 weeks ahead. But, since discovering this new venue in Nyack, I’ve taken a no-holds-barred approach and listed a brush calligraphy workshop on my calendar, less than two weeks in advance. I was just too darn excited about using this space and setting it up to my liking, which for most of my previous workshops was not possible due to cost, time, space, and other logistics.

While the turnout was small (as expected), I couldn’t have been more content or comfortable in this space. I didn’t feel flustered like I usually would in the past due to running around, driving/commuting, parking, lugging supplies, etc. The art gallery is literally down the street from me so I don’t have to deal with parking, but I also have my own little storage space there so all of my workshop supplies will be housed there. Now, I can focus more on the little details, and not feel out of breath before class begins.

See some of the details from the workshop in the images below!

A Spring Bridal Shower for Ting [Highlights]

Earlier this spring, I received an inquiry for a bridal shower calligraphy workshop - and I couldn't have been more excited! I love that the bride chose to celebrate her nearest and dearest girlfriends with the gift of creativity!

I created personalized folders for each guest - complete with a watercolor name card and satin ribbon. Inside each folder contained alphabet exemplars, practice worksheets, blank paper, tracing paper and two blank 5x7 inch cards. Each guest also received a brush pen to use and take home.

I printed out blank cards with a watercolor floral frame to complement the occasion - some chose to letter messages of good wishes and congrats to the bride.

The calligraphy class came as a surprise to most of the guests so it was awesome to see how they dove right into learning and creating. Many of the ladies seemed to have a natural talent for calligraphy - we joked that it may have something to do with their profession as dentists!

Good food, drinks, friends, and calligraphy - I can't think of a better way to celebrate!
