We’re over the hump! We’re here twice a month to let you know what’s going on in the area each weekend. Here are just a few of the events happening locally over the coming weekends.

Calligraphy Class in the Brentsville School

When the Brentsville Schoolhouse was in use between 1929 and 1944, one of the skills taught to students was penmanship. Have you ever wanted to improve your handwriting skills or be able to make your own invitations? During this two-hour workshop you will learn about the historic importance of writing forms, a few basic traditional calligraphy styles, have the chance to try out your own new calligraphy skills, and learn some history along the way. Advance registration is required: 703-365-7895. Saturday, Jan. 29, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon | Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre, 12229 Bristow Road, Bristow
