Introduction to Brush Lettering

October 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us Sunday, Oct. 6 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. for an introduction to brush lettering.

This class will be an afternoon of colorful fun as we learn calligraphy letterforms with brush markers and watercolors! No experience is required and all materials will be provided. You will be able to take all your materials home with you to continue your practice! This class is also perfect for students with prior calligraphy experience, but would like to learn how to use a different medium for their lettering.

Each student will receive:

  • Exemplar and guidelines
  • Practice paper
  • 2 brush markers (one color, one black)
  • 1 aqua brush
  • 1 set of watercolors
  • Washi tape
  • Pencil
  • Personalized name card

Other good things to note:

  • No prior calligraphy experience needed and all materials are provided.
  • This workshop is designed for participants ages 14 and up.
  • This class is limited to 8 participants in order to maintain a small group atmosphere. A minimum of 5 people must register for the class to proceed. We will contact participants if it looks like the minimum is not being met and full refunds will be provided if it is cancelled.
  • The workshop will take place in Hitchcock Paper Co.’s waterfront studio in historic Occoquan, Virginia. Ample onsite and street parking is available.
  • Workshops are non-refundable, however you may transfer your seat to someone else.

This workshop is taught by Jenny Paxton of Jenny Paxton Calligraphy. Jenny is a North Carolina native with a southern accent and Carolina blue blood living and working as a calligrapher in the Washington, DC area. She is a member of the Washington Calligraphers Guild and the International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting. She provides calligraphy for brides and event planners throughout the region. In her own words, “A stack of blank envelopes waiting to be addressed excites me and soothes my soul at the same time.” Learn more about Jenny at jennypaxtoncalligraphy.com.
