Frequently Ask Questions

Why is this course more expensive than previous courses? 

I've spent years in my own practice discovering that that materials do influence product. For my workshops I provide artist grade materials to give the best products. Because calligraphy uses ink that can bleed on regular paper, we are working on the best papers with the same tools that the pros use. At my workshop, you will have multiple instruments, multiple papers, envelopes, cards, and more. 

Do I need to bring a friend?

No! The best part about these workshops is that most of us walk in as strangers and leave as friends. It's so much fun to watch as well as be apart of. It's also ok if you're on the shy-side, we have a lot of work to get done in just a little amount of time!

How old should participants be?

My first jobs were teaching art to children. From there, I began an AP Art prep program for high school art students, and lately, I've been teaching adults. These courses are for all ages, we  have a great time and we are also pretty tame. We will drink coffee, eat delicious pastries and snacks, and enjoy learning-- I'd say that's something all ages can share in!
