brush calligraphy workshop houston texas

Is it time to move beyond simply admiring brush calligraphy? Are you ready to create beautiful letters of your own? I'm so excited to share what I've learned in my brush lettering journey with you in a fun and thoroughly educational Brush Calligraphy class!

With the knowledge you'll gain - and practice, of course! - you'll be able to letter personal projects for your home, create meaningful gifts for friends and family, address envelopes beautifully, and even begin a new business of your own! My classes are for beginners, so if you've never tried calligraphy or brush lettering you're perfectly welcome to start here!

How does it work?

All of my classes are booked privately. To book a private event please fill out the form below with location, desired class date, and number of students.

Spaces suitable for calligraphy lessons will require a sink or access to running water, good lighting at the work space, and
tables and chairs with each student given enough space to practice comfortably (1.5 feet per seat minimum). And don't forget the sound level! We'll need to be able to hear each other, so louder venues aren't going to work.

Outdoor venues are welcome, but require a backup in case of inclement weather, and a cover or tent to avoid sitting in direct sun.
With all calligraphy workshops you provide the venue. I am happy to offer recommendations to suit your budget.

Classes are offered in the Greater Houston area and beyond. Depending on the distance, travel fees may be added.

$195 per person for 3 to 15 students. Classes with 4 students booked 2 weeks in advance will earn 1 free student.
Classes must be booked at least one month in advance with a non-refundable payment for 2 studentsPayment for all attendees is due 2 weeks before date of event. 

All payment is due before the class date. Payments are non-refundable.
