CraftJam Academy: Modern Calligraphy Workshop (Intermediate)

We are excited to announce a new Intermediate Calligraphy Workshop, a continuation of our popular Craftjam Academy: Modern Calligraphy Workshop Series!

This workshop will reinforce and build on the foundational skills learned in the Craftjam Academy: Modern Calligraphy Workshop. In two sessions, calligrapher Danielle Rothman will guide you through creating your own alphabet exemplar and a silhouette-inspired final project. You will explore new mediums, try more advanced nibs, and practice adding flourishes and embellishments to personalize your writing.
