Brush Calligraphy Classes & Workshops

brush calligraphy lessons houston texas

Ready to move beyond simply admiring brush calligraphy and create beautiful letters of your own? If so, let me share what I've learned in my brush lettering journey with you and a group of friends (old or new!) in a fun and thoroughly educational Brush Lettering for Beginners 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 for an upcoming wedding or event, or 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!
