With handwriting becoming a thing of the past, our Beginning & Advanced Calligraphy Workshops will inspire and immerse you in the elegant craft of calligraphy. Beautiful type and lettering skills await you, under the tutelage of renowned artist, illustrator, and calligrapher Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls.
Each person will receive a personalized calligraphy starter kit which includes black ink, a pen holder, nib, practice book and sheets, with lots of inspiration to continue your practice on your own. Students can bring along any items that have inspired them to pick up calligraphy-- anything from a personalized envelope to a wedding invite.
" I enjoyed the energy and Maybelle's suggestions and advice. I also loved the take home kits."
" Maybelle is such a generous spirit and a patient teacher. This is my second workshop with her. I took the beginner workshop last year and took the Advanced this year. I’ve gained so much from both."
" After taking Maybelle’s workshop, I started my own line of greeting cards. I can’t tell you how much this workshop meant to me. I recommend everyone I know to take this workshop"
