I was super happy to kick off 2018 with 4 amazing modern calligraphy workshops in January! I had so much fun getting to know each student and helping them get started on their lettering journey–I truly feel honored and humbled that each attendee has trusted me to share this art form with them! It was also awesome to get to teach at some new venues and offer the workshop in different cities in Southern California.
Letter For Good: Each workshop seat helps to provide 10 meals for The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool & Nursery in Motherwell, South Africa. January workshops provided 350 meals to The EEC!
Here’s a recap of January workshops…
1.13.18 | SHEA’S BRUSH LETTERING BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
It was awesome helping Shea celebrate her 32nd birthday (on her actual birthday!) with this private brush lettering workshop! Shea is a fellow crafter and maker herself (see the cute banner she made?) and added the cutest touches to her party. You can read more about the lovely details and the workshop over on her blog, Not So Cli-Shea. I absolutely loved this group of ladies, their friendship, Shea’s pups, and the fact that they started a group text to send each other pics of their lettering as they practice! :) (Such a great idea!)
1.20.18 | SWEET PEA | CERRITOS
Sweet Pea is where my workshop journey began! Lauree, owner of Sweet Pea, was actually the first person to suggest I teach–I can’t thank her enough for her endless support and encouragement! I feel like it came full circle to have my first public workshop here where everything started. I loved the energy every attendee brought to this class and learning more about everyone. I also had my youngest student so far in this class–Maddie is almost 12 and it was really inspiring to have her there. Besides showing that this art form is great for all ages, she reminded me a lot of my younger self! Maddie is already creating lovely work and I can’t even imagine how amazing it will be as she grows and develops her talents and style!
1.27.18 | OH SHINY PAPER CO | SAN GABRIEL
I’ve been so excited to teach at Oh Shiny Paper Co because I have been a fan/stalker of them on Instagram for awhile now! Lol. Their balloons and party products are SO happy and cute and their space is as well! This was such a fun group and I have to give a shout out to Vicki–she took my workshop last year and told her friends about it which is how most of us here ended up lettering together. PS: Becca’s bunny was there and is the cutest thing ever!
1.28.18 | SHARE & DO GOOD | BIXBY KNOLLS, LONG BEACH
Share & Do Good is one of my most favorite stores and this is one of my most favorite workshop group photos! It was great to be able to teach here because Lilly, owner of Share, and I both believe in giving back and doing what we can to help others. Not only did this workshop provide meals for The EEC but S&DG also donates to Rice Bowls–so lots of giving that day :) There were some familiar faces at this workshop along with new friends and it was a lovely way to spend my Sunday and wrap up January classes!
Want to learn modern calligraphy using brush pens? I’d love to letter with you!
