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.

Brush Calligraphy Hangout

Brush Calligraphy Hangout

Back in December we had our first hangout. It was such a success that I've been getting a lot of requests for another one. So here it is!

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.

No experience needed! For those of you who are curious and want to try out before the big 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 $15, you’ll take home a brush pen and a few sheets of paper, PLUS.... a hot drink and a cookie from our Quirky friends! 

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