Raina of Fête & Quill will be hosting a workshop that combines the art of hand-lettering and dried florals!
At this workshop - you will learn the basics of hand-lettering forms and strokes - and then apply it to make two beautiful statement pieces for your home, office or as a gift. First begins with the lettered piece, then you will create a pressed floral backdrop to display your lettering on. You've seen the Pinterest pins of this type of artwork - and now you can make it for yourself!
Each student will receive all materials needed to create two hand-lettered, pressed floral pieces. Pens, florals and everything you could possibly need to make home decor magic! Believe me - these final pieces are sure to WOW anyone who sees them! The beauty and uniqueness is undeniable. Hang it on your wall - and get ready for the compliments! Light refreshments included - and a whole lot of fun! XO **Photo credit to Michelle Roller - designed by Sandcastle Celebrations**
This workshop is an introduction to Modern Calligraphy. Taught by professional calligrapher, Raina Toy-Smith, owner and creative of Fête & Quill. She will introduce you to the modern calligraphy art form and provide you with top quality materials, detailed handout and practice sheets - and lots of fun calligraphy tools and goodies. Armed with all these calligraphy goods - Raina will instill in you the knowledge on how to use these supplies and begin your journey into modern lettering! Technique, exercise strokes, inks, paper and lots more will be taught - plus, you will be fully prepared after the class is over to continue your practice.
This is an amazing opportunity to learn modern calligraphy - whether you are a compete beginner, or want to continue your practice and learn some new techniques!
Workshop seats are highly limited - due to the intimate nature of the class. It is preferred to keep the classes small, so that each attendee gets ample one-on-one instruction and advice throughout the day.
