What you'll learn in this calligraphy & hand lettering class:

This one-session modern calligraphy workshop will give you a taste of three different styles! Calligrapher Danielle Rothman will teach you the fundamentals of modern calligraphy, a free-form style that is all about personalizing your writing! In the first part of class, you will be guided through practicing the basic strokes that make up all letters, a calligraphy alphabet, and both faux and brush calligraphy.

In the second part of class, we will introduce dip pen calligraphy and continue honing our skills.

Each student will receive a kit with a couple of markers, a dip pen with a nib + some ink, and practice paper for you to continue your practice at home.

This class is for absolute beginners, and left-handers are welcome!

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
