Calligraphy for Beginners


Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a type-lover or you just want to learn a new creative skill, our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop is the perfect thing. We’ve teamed with the Hamilton Calligraphy guild to bring this artistic process to WHAM. First you’ll learn the basic exercises, working up to letter forms. By the end of the class you’ll put it all together to write phrases, as well as starting to develop your own lettering style.

Workshop Fee: $35. Pre-registration required – all supplies included.
