Kicking off the return of Fern Shop Classes with our most popular workshop, Calligraphy with The Hive Studio! And because we've missed hosting classes so much we are offering two! On Saturday, July 30 we will have a beginners class in the morning and an intermediate class in the afternoon. 

Our beginners class will cover the basics of holding and understanding the anatomy of the pen, dipping ink, and scribing the alphabet. 

The intermediate level is designed for anyone with a basic knowledge of pointed pen calligraphy, or has taken a beginner calligraphy class. Students will take their beginner skills to the next level. You will learn how to connect letters and words, refine letterforms to write on a straight line, & create evenly spaced letterforms; all while using gorgeous white & gold inks, & intermediate nibs. Students will also learn how to mix their own gouache ink that you will use in class & to take home. With guidance, you will also have time to play & learn how to create your own unique writing style. During the workshop, you will learn how to address envelopes and will be shown how to digitize your calligraphy. 

Each student will receive a Hive Studio Kit, a beautifully crafted calligraphy kit designed specifically for both levels to use in class and to take home to practice.

The beginners session will run from 11am-1pm followed by the intermediate from 2pm-5pm. 

Registration opens on Wednesday, June 29th at 6pm.
