Calligraphy - Private Lesson Party


Calligraphy - Private Lesson Party


Whether you simply want to address your holiday cards or use calligraphy to style your upcoming wedding- a private lesson is the perfect place to start. These personal, intensives ensure one on one instruction to teach the fundamentals and techniques to start your calligraphy practice successfully.

We can work in a space that is comfortable for you and your group totaling from 3-5 friends. Book a private workshop for a girls night out, team building with co-workers or perhaps as a birthday/holiday gift experience.

How it Works:
I arrive at your venue or invite you into my home base with my exclusive Work Box kits in tow and a ton of enthusiasm for sharing my love for calligraphy with your party of friends (minimum 3 / max 5). I'll teach your gang the beginner-basics class and share all my tips and tricks. The course covers all tools, foundations and fundamentals. The class time is approximately 3 hours. 

(For the price listed I can travel up to 50 miles one way. Any additional mileage would require a slight adjustment in the fee. I can host the workshop in my home studio if you do not have available space. Refreshments served.)

CLASS MINIMUM:  3 Students
$95 per student  (pre-payment one week in advance of workshop date required)

The possibilities are absolutely endless with calligraphy. From simple place cards and beautifully addresses envelopes, calligraphy has so many applications. Modern calligraphy is the neo-traditionalist hobby that is attainable for anyone with the motivation and the right tool kit to get started successfully! I'm so excited to share my knowledge of the craft with others - I feel strongly about handmade, simple and elegantand calligraphy is just that.  My goal is to get students started out with the correct techniques, quality supply recommendations and a thorough understanding of the fundamentals.

The workshop experience is hands on- while I explain and demonstrate techniques and guide you through the alphabet from A to Z. You're encouraged to find your own personal lettering style and with practice and motivation you can become more comfortable and fluent as a calligrapher. You'll be provided with a tool kit of high quality, beginner-friendly tools and supplies. Your kit of supplies will take you through hours of practice as you develop your new skill. 

I'm open to other options as well! Please email me if you have any interest in scheduling a workshop. A private workshop is a great gift for friends, family or co-workers during the Holiday Season! Also a great team-building experience.  Have a question? Email Janna!

About your teacher:

Hi I’m Janna! I’ve been teaching creative workshops for over 16 years, both locally, nationally and for major craft manufacturers and publications such as Fiskars and Better Homes and Gardens' craft titles. Incidentally, creative lettering was one of the first classes I taught all those years ago at a scrapbook store in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Over the years, I’ve continued to develop my design and lettering skills and I’m now able to use them in my graphic design work and commissioned works. I started with pointed pen calligraphy in 2012 and I’m mostly self taught through many hours of practice, classes, readings and trial and error. I’m excited to share the basics of this fun hobby through workshops and demonstrations.
