About This Class


Two years ago, I couldn't find many resources to learn modern calligraphy. The resources that I did find were so lengthy that I had a hard time sifting through them. Over a six month period, I bought a lot of the wrong supplies and just kept trying new things until I finally had an ah-ha moment when it all clicked. Six months after that, I quit my job and embarked on a new business venture with my new skill. 

Now I spend my days doing calligraphy for wedding invitations, events, book covers and more. In addition, I love to share what I learned so that others can learn it more cost effectively and efficiently. 

You will learn my favorite tools, how to use them, common mistakes that I see in my students and be able to practice with my Beginner Modern Calligraphy Workbook. 

Come and learn with me!
