Holiday Gift Tag Calligraphy at Rwanda Bean Roastery @ Rosemont Market & Wine Bar
Dec 2 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Holiday Gift Tag Calligraphy at Rwanda Bean Roastery @ Rosemont Market & Wine Bar | Portland | Maine | United States

Join us at Rwanda Bean Roastery in Portland, Maine for an afternoon of coffee 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 all your holiday tables, Christmas trees, hostess gifts, gift tags, holiday card mailings and more!

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 workshop! Additionally, we will be lettering on holiday gift tags at the end of our class time!

Rwanda Bean will be graciously offering a free drip or iced coffee for each ticket holder! To learn more about Rwanda Bean, check out their website and say hey on Instagram.

Get your tickets below!

Feel free to come early to check-in, grab your seat, and order a drink and food (available to order throughout class too!). Class will start promptly at 2:00pm.

Class Expectations: This class is encouraged for someone who has never taken a calligraphy class before. We teach the basics and our expectation for you is to have ink flowing through your nib with enough confidence to be able to practice way beyond class. We love using tracing paper with our guides to help you build muscle memory and develop your own style!  If you have tried calligraphy out before, this class will be a great refresher and hopefully a chance to try some new supplies from our beginner kit that will re-introduce you to this lovely form of art!

Speckled Ax Mugstock 2022 @ Speckled Ax - Thames Street
Dec 3 @ 7:00 am – 2:00 pm
Speckled Ax Mugstock 2022 @ Speckled Ax - Thames Street | Portland | Maine | United States
Hello! Speckled Ax invites local potters and ceramic artists to our Thames Street shop on Saturday, December 3 for a day of showing off handmade mugs and drinking vessels, and the general public for a day of purchasing them! There’s no cost involved—we just like the idea of a room filled with cool mugs, and giving artists a place to make some money during the holidays. Send us a DM here or an email to [email protected] if you’d like to be involved. We have no idea how many folks might be interested, so we’ll start collecting info and go from there. And please share with folks you think need to see this. Thanks!
