Workshops available locally in Kansas
During this one-and-a-half hour class, Emilee will share all of her tips and tricks for writing using the faux-ligraphy method, which means “writing pretty without using a fancy calligraphy dip pen.” She will show you how to address cards and envelopes (perfect for the holiday seasons coming upon us); write on chalkboards and other unique surfaces, and talk about her favorite supplies (some of which you may already have right in your office drawer at home). She also includes a workbook with step-by-step how-to’s and several different types of lettering styles (from fun to vintage to elegant)! Your kit (which is included in your ticket price) will also include some of her favorite writing tools and materials. If you have a favorite pen, pencil, or marker of your own, feel free to bring it along! And if you have some thank-you cards to write or want to get a jump start on addressing envelopes for Christmas cards, feel free to bring along your supplies for that! You’ll get a chance to play, write and get Emilee’s instructional feedback. No fancy-lettering or artistic experience needed; great for all ages (ages 9-99)!
