Philly Calligraphy Brunch

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming popularity of this series, we will be hosting another series on February 7th and 8th, 2015. Registration is now open! For more information go here, or head here to register!

BOTH CLASSES ARE SOLD OUT! Thanks to everyone who has already expressed an interest in this series! If you’d like to be added to the mailing list for future classes, please leave a comment below!

Heeeeey, I’ve got some super exciting news today! I am finally getting around to announcing this project that I have been working on for many months. I’m partnering with Christie of bedsidesign to bring you Philly’s first ever calligraphy brunch! I’ve got a pretty sweet studio and a knack for throwing parties, and Christie’s got some serious calligraphy skills and a desire to share. It’s pretty much a match made in heaven. All the details, and a few teaser images are after the jump…

Philly Calligraphy Brunch

You are invited to join us on Saturday, September 6th OR Sunday, September 7th from 11AM to 2PM for a modern calligraphy course for beginners! It will be at my Fishtown studio, at 2628 Martha Street, Suite #2D Philadelphia PA 19125 (Hatchatory Studios).

I’ll be hosting a light brunch complete with champagne cocktails (of course), your morning coffee, sweet treats from Federal Doughnuts, and more! You’ll have plenty of time to snack and get to know your fellow classmates throughout the event.

The calligraphy portion of the class will be taught by Christie Jones (see her work scattered throughout this post). She’ll provide a comprehensive lesson with lots of one-on-one instruction, and all of the materials you’ll need to get started. Class sizes are limited to 15 students, so be sure to sign up while we’ve still got a seat for you.

We’ll have many special touches including a photobooth backdrop, a goodie bag full of fun surprises, and decor by Maggpie Vintage!

If you have any questions about the class, please feel free to ask. If you’re ready to sign up, AWESOME! You can do so RIGHT HERE! We’ve worked our little butts off to make this class the most educational and enjoyable calligraphy event around, and we can’t wait to see you there!

      Lisa- I’ll only be hosting courses in my studio, but the focus will change from event to event. Christie, only teaches calligraphy, but her location changes! This Philly class will be start of her “calligraphy tour,” so visit the classes page on her website to keep up to date on the other locations. Or you could take a little road trip up to Philly 😉 We’ll also be having a little blogger get together while she’s in town…

      ROAD TRIP!!! I would love to see you there Lisa! Philly is going to be the furthest south location for this tour – but DC is on my wishlist for places to have workshops!

      Gloria – I’m actually based in Long Island, NY! I’m planning some Long Island classes after this tour – would love for you to come! Sign up for my newsletter on my blog to stay up-to-date on all my workshops!

    Count me in Sarah! I’ve been waiting to come across something like this and it will be great to see you too! 🙂 Christie’s work is beautiful, I’m really looking forward to the class.

      Hi Maria, yes I plan to host other classes if this one goes well. The content and teacher will vary from class to class, but I’d love to bring Christie back if there’s enough interest!

    Sounds amazing! Putting it on my calendar as a tentative (it’s a crazy time a new teaching year starting up that week), but I’d love to meet you and get my learn on. Is there any hope for a lefty like me?

    1. Sarah Post author

      Absolutely, Sarah! We’d love to have you! I was actually JUST thinking the same thing about your watercolor date night. It sounds awesome! Yes, there is hope for the lefties. I believe it’s best to use a different style nib and holder, but I’ll leave it to Christie for a full explanation!

    Hi Sarah! I’m new to Philly, and just signed up for a brunch after seeing a sponsored post on Facebook! I can’t wait 🙂

      Done and done! Thanks for your interest, Kerry! I am in the early planning stages of a DIY beauty class in early December, and another calligraphy series in February. I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

    1. Sarah Post author

      Absolutely Jessie! A class is in the works for the 1st weekend of February. I’ll be sending out an email newsletter very, very soon!

    I would love to go to one of these calligraphy classes if you open up any more after February – I’m trying to teach myself and it’s… not cute : )

    Thanks!

      It will likely be a while before I do another calligraphy class, Claire! If you’re interested, I suggest you sign up for the Sunday class ASAP. Saturday’s all sold out and as of this moment we have 4 spots left for Sunday!
