Calligraphy Hangout: Nov. 30

  • Centre cultruel Les trois p'tits points (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I’ve been getting lots of requests for another calligraphy hangout. Some preferred during the weekend, others in the evening. So I decided to organize not one but TWO separate events!

This laid-back event encourages us to learn hand lettering from each other. So let’s keep on working on creating our community of hand-letterers here in Alexandria. In these two workshops, we will explore Faux Calligraphy and how to embellish our Christmas cards & envelopes, tags and other festive ornaments!

No experience needed! For those of you who are curious and want to try out before the significant investment in a workshop, this is ideal! If you have some experience, this is a great time to practice and share your skills with others!

For $20, you’ll take home the featured pen a few sheets of paper and other goodies, PLUS....you’ll get a nice festive treat from our friends at The Quirky Carrot!

If you wish to participate, please reserve your spot in advance as space is limited and to make sure I have supplies for you!

Legion Week Calligraphy Workshop

Legion Week Calligraphy Workshop

What in the world is LEGION WEEK?

It's a week of promoting every Royal Canadian Legion branch in Canada. Although not obligated, it is recommended that every branch organizes activities. In Ontario, Legion Week is the third week of September. Our Alexandria Branch #423 will be hosting events from September 14 to 22. All activity proceeds raised by Branch #423 during that week, will go to the Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund! How amazing is that!

That being said, I decided to make my contribution to this week of community gathering. Why not have a calligraphy night all while supporting our Canadian veterans?

In this laid-back workshop, you will learn the basics of modern brush calligraphy.  We will explore how to form beautiful letters and words, and finish, with creating a sweet greeting card.

No experience needed! For those of you who are curious and want to try out before the significant investment in an advanced workshop, this is ideal! If you have some experience, this is a great time to practice and to support our Legion.

For $20, not only you are supporting our Veterans but, you’ll take home a brush pen, a few sheets of calligraphy paper and your finished artwork. PLUS.... you will get a voucher for a drink from the bar (um...I'm thinking Girls night?). 

Please reserve your spot in advance if you wish to participate as space is limited and to make sure I have supplies for you!

Chalkboard Lettering Hangout

Wedding season is here! Nothing says rustic wedding like some nice chalkboard lettering. This versatile style can go anywhere; home decor, small business signage, classrooms and much more! 

In this hangout, we will explore and share different chalk techniques. As always, no experience is required but hand-lettering basics is an asset as we will be spending most of our time creating efficient layouts and adding flourishes, banners and borders. We will, however do a quick run down on "Faux Calligraphy".  

For $25, participants take home a small chalkboard, chalk and other supplies. AND... included in the price is a cold beverage and treat of your choice from our Quirky friends! 

Register now as space and supplies are limited.
