How do I book a private workshop for just me or me and my friends?

To book a private event please fill out the form below with location, desired class dates, and estimated 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 not preferred due to wind and direct sun, but are up for discussion. Outdoor venues require a backup location in case of inclement weather.
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.

Class Fees:
$125 per person for 3 to 15 students in a class workshop setting.
Classes with 4 students booked 2 weeks in advance will earn 1 free ticket.
$225 per person for 1 to 2 students in a private lesson.

Classes must be booked at least one month in advance with a non-refundable payment for no less than 1 student per private lesson students or 3 students for a class workshop
Payment for all attendees is due 1 week before date of event. 

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