When my friend Ashley told me about Dabble – classes in Chicago where you can teach and try new things, I couldn’t wait to sign up. My Calligraphy Class was a perfect first choice to take with Lindsay.
As a Wedding Planner and someone who still writes every note and card in cursive, I couldn’t wait to have a go. From beautiful custom wedding invitations to escort cards, chalk board signs, table numbers and more. Calligraphy can be a true work of art.
Meg’s class was a great beginner’s class. She provided guidelines, visual instructions on how to correctly hold and angle your pen and numerous tips and tricks for tricker curvy letters (think lowercase a’s and g’s). By the end of the class I could write my name in formal italic lowercase.
I would recommend this class to anyone interested in calligraphy (I have already had 2 friends sign up!). Although I will be leaving the addressing of wedding invitations to the professionals, I can’t wait to practice and create a few pieces of my own.
