When I started this little calligraphy business, I had no idea how much fun it would be to collaborate with other small businesses. It’s amazing what happens when creatives come together! One of my favorite collaborations has been with Jess at J.Isabel Designs – she designs the most adorable gift boxes for every occasion, and I have the privilege of creating the calligraphy gift tags for each box! I love that Jess has some traditional tags, but also has some fun, unique wording options too! Check out some of my favorite boxes below!
I am so thrilled to be preparing for another beginner’s calligraphy workshop this fall! What a privilege to combine my two loves – teaching and calligraphy! And in the best season – fall! If you’ve ever wanted to learn calligraphy, here’s your chance! I will provide all the supplies you need to get started. During the workshop, I will introduce attendees to the art of pointed pen calligraphy, including how to use an oblique holder and create basic calligraphy letter forms. But the second part of the workshop is my favorite! I will be demonstrating how I create my wooden calligraphy signs and guests will be creating their own to take home that day!
The calligraphy workshop is going to take place at the gorgeous Studio Milk in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Alyssa of Ginger & Blooms is helping to plan and style the workshop, so you know it’s going to be beautiful! We’ll also be indulging in fall treats from Sweets by E! And one lucky guest will be taking home an adorable gift box from J. Isabel Designs! I am so thrilled to have all of these amazing vendors making the workshop extra special for attendees, and Mikaela Marie Photography will be capturing all the fun!
