Join us at Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland, ME for an evening of unique, locally-made drinks and pretty lettering! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY Bride-to-be, or just a crafty individual, in this workshop you’ll be learning an introduction to modern calligraphy with a pointed dip pen and ink. We will cover all the basics and get you ready to add those special lettered details to your snail mail, wedding paper goods, home decor and more! The perfect crafty night out!
Class includes 1.5 hours of instruction and demonstration, our beginner’s calligraphy kit (two nibs, black ink pot, 2 letter guides, tracing paper and straight pen holder), and all materials to write on. Everything is yours to keep at the end of the class!
If you feel COVID 19 symptoms the day of class, we will gladly transfer you into another event if you email [email protected] *before* the event. Please stay home if you are symptomatic.
*Feel free to come early to check in, grab your seat, and order a drink (drinks available to order throughout class too, call ahead to see if their kitchen is open that day for food!). Class will start promptly at 5:30pm!
A book-recommendation sharing-circle! Bring a book you’ve recently read (or are currently reading) to share (or not!), and listen to some folks do the same. Co-presented with Portland Public Library and Mechanics’ Hall.
In inclement weather we will meet in Mechanics’ Hall, just down Congress Street.
