Austin Calligraphy Classes with Antiquaria
Today I’m delighted to announce two February calligraphy classes with my friends over at Antiquaria! My love of snail mail and lettering is no secret, but truth be told, I’ve always wanted to bump up my penmanship skills. I envy my friends with the perfect swirly signature or beautifully addressed outgoing mail. Well—no longer! Bailey and Emma are offering two classes in February, one for Script Studies (a perfect place to start) and another for Monogram Design. I love that in the Monogram class you walk away with your own custom monogram that will be digitalized for digital use, and in both classes, students work on a design for their own custom rubber stamp. Not a swirly kind of girl? Don’t fret; you can create a more modern handlettered design if you wish!
This is the perfect holiday gift for someone special or a wonderful treat to yourself. I love the idea of learning to make a beautiful monogram and then stamping it at the top of your notes like your own personal stationery. And how fun would it be to address your holiday cards next year with some handlettered pizzazz?
