Join gather on Thursday May 16th at 7p for our Modern Calligraphy Workshop with Rachel Jacques of Bright Line Studio. For this class we are headed to Berkeley to pop up at our favorite East Bay shop, Neeko. This two and a half hour class is for beginners who are eager to learn modern calligraphy! We will go over the basic strokes before heading into the lower case and upper case alphabet. All the necessary materials you need for the class and at home practice will be provided. You will get a complete alphabet and resources workbook for beginners, worksheets, oblique calligraphy pen, 2 nibs, a Rhodia paper pad, black ink, and extra paper. At the end of the class you will create a hand lettered quote that you can take home!

Bright Line Studio, is a boutique design and calligraphy studio based in San Francisco. Designer, Rachel, focuses primarily on wedding and event branding, paper goods, and styling. She started calligraphy when she was planning her own wedding. What started as a need for her own wedding quickly turned into her passion and business. For Rachel calligraphy is a way to relax and enjoy creating beautiful keepsakes for myself and others.

gather will provide beer, wine and snacks to fuel your creativity. And our lovely host, Neeko will give you a special discount on purchases while you’re there! Be sure to sign soon, spaces will fill up fast.

For continued practice at home you can purchase a modern calligraphy kit after the class for an additional $25! The kit includes extra nibs, a straight calligraphy pen (different than in class), a copy of the alphabet workbook, extra practice sheets, and a variety of fun paper and envelopes to send cards and make art pieces. Everything you would need for continued practice or to gift to a artistic friend!
