workshops this month : brooklyn nyc

NEWSLETTER_HEADING_Oct.1 Most of the workshops quickly sold out after announcing them this Monday but there are still some seats left at the brand-new Open Project Session on Wednesday evening, Oct 23rd from 6:30-8:30pm in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

The Project Session is perfect for those who have had at least a little bit of experience. Bring your supplies, your materials and any questions you have and I will spend the time advising you on your work, discussing particular questions or approaches.

Maybe you've taken a class or two and are looking to spend some more time practicing. Or perhaps you're planning to address your own wedding invitations and want some advice on the process. Or maybe you're thinking about some calligraphy gifts you'd like to make for friends. Whatever it is, bring the materials and supplies and I'll spend time with each of you to help you move forward with your calligraphy!

Bring your inks, nibs and paper and any samples of materials you're trying to work with. I'll have some of my favorite supplies on hand for you to test out and experiment with as well, but be sure to have everything you need with you for a productive time.

I'll have some snacks, some wine and loads of moral support and calligraphy advice ready for you!

$50 includes a two-hour session, drink and cookies. Sign up here.

collab in portland oregon ! calligraphy & letterpress workshop

yu_workshop I'm excited to announce a two-part calligraphy and letterpress workshop in Portland, OR later this month in collaboration with my brilliant buddies, Mara of Neither Snow calligraphy and Emily of EMPrint Press letterpress studio.

On Monday evening, September 23rd, Mara and I will instruct an evening of calligraphy lessons over wine, cookies and bottles of ink. We'll teach fundamental skills and techniques in contemporary calligraphy and then create a design or signature to use in Saturday's letterpress class!

Emily will produce polymer plates of your work so that you can print your own stationery or bookplates in her workshop on Saturday afternoon, September 28th. It's a wonderful pairing and sure to be a really fun, informative time.

Register for either workshop at $125 each; or save $25 and do both. Way better!
