Workshop Overview

If you’re interested in learning calligraphy, but haven’t been able to get started, this is the class for you!

Learn the cheapest, easiest and most fun way to write beautifully with the craziest of instruments: a marker.

In this day long class, we will give a short introduction into the art of calligraphy followed by in-depth tutorials of the basic fundamentals and techniques to achieve stylistic results and incorporating your writing into a hand lettered piece.

You’ll leave the workshop with:

  • An exclusive (only available to workshop attendees) Crayligraphy reference guide

  • A hand written-to-drawn final piece—in the style of your choice—that’ll be ready to post to your social media platform of choice

  • Small group reviews and discussions as well as one-on-one feedback

  • Access to a brand new private Facebook Group for Crayligraphers only, where you’ll be able to post your work and receive feedback from our team and fellow students

  • Any additional perks and/or gifts our instructors

I have been using what I learned in the Crayligraphy workshop everyday. I really enjoyed it and have found a deep love for getting back to pen and paper.
