Vichcraft Calligraphy Workshop
In honor of the hotel’s 125th Anniversary, we’re very excited collaborate on an exclusive workshop with Vichcraft, the independent and collaborative, multi-disciplinary studio of Jenna Blazevich.
This beginner calligraphy workshop, led by Jenna Blazevich, will cover the basics of pointed pen oblique calligraphy. We will work with a simplified alphabet that referenced copperplate and Spencerian styles, and we’ll also explore an additional brush pen lettering technique. Whether you’ve picked up up a calligraphy pen before or aren’t sure what one looks like, this class is for you. Jenna will go over the basics of lettering from the very beginning – how to set up your pen, dip ink, brush stokes, and write letters.
At the workshop, you will receive:
1 Oblique nib holder
1 Gillott 303 calligraphy nib
1 Gillott 404 calligraphy nib
1 Higgins eternal black ink pot
1 Faber-Castell brush marker
1 pad of marker paper
Custom practice alphabetws
Canvas tote bag
