Intro to Modern Calligraphy

  • COMMON SPACE 2915 Tulare Street Fresno, CA, 93721 United States (map)

From the organizer: 

Hand lettering is IN right now, people-- come jump on the train with me!

I am Shelley Borcherding, owner and head calligrapher of Scirbble & Script. The Modern Calligraphy craze is every where you look, so come learn the fundamentals of this fancy font in my Introduction class. Through three hours of instruction (I know it sounds like a lot but it goes by so fast!), I cover all of the basics needed to get started on your hand lettering journey, from building capital AND lower case letters, basic letter connections, and styling. This interactive class setting gives you the opportunity to have FUN while learning a new skill. 

So what's included y'all!?

  • 12 page bound Practice Workbook AND access to a digital copy to print out at home for further practice
  • Tombow brush pen, gold paint pen, and pencil 
  • 8x10 canvas to create your very own visual masterpiece
  • Hand lettered goodie bag customized with your name
  • Complimentary Red/White Wine and light snacks
  • Delightful banter and fun loving environment 

I know, right? SOUNDS AWESOME. 

See you there, future amazing letterers!
