Introduction to Modern Calligraphy

The coursework for the Introduction to Modern Calligraphy workshop is aimed for complete beginners. No experience necessary, and you'll leave with serious industry insight.  All workshops include a full starter kit to take home with all the tools you’ll need: ink, nibs, recommended paper, customized instruction booklet and more. This hands-on course provides a detailed foundation of history of calligraphy, in-depth techniques of pointed pen, one-on-one attention and correction of technique, and of course small bites and wine.  

Each workshop is in a small intimate setting and spaces are very limited.  Due to the costs of supplies and specific pre-planning that goes into these events, reservations for workshops are non-refundable - no exceptions. Contact us if you're interested in setting up a workshop near you.

Instructed by Taryn Sutherland Gross, owner & designer of Twinkle & Toast.

I’ve attended one of her courses and she is an excellent instructor. She’s kind, patient, and very thorough. She takes the time to explain the art of modern calligraphy, share information about what products she uses, and answer any questions you might have. I can’t stress enough how talented and passionate Taryn is about what she does. It not only shows in her work, but with the fact that she’s willing to share that talent by teaching others the art of modern calligraphy.

We all loved it! It was so fun to get together with friends to share this memory of learning a new skill. I love the background on calligraphy that you started with and seeing it as an art form. I also love the books and reusable tote bags we took home!

Taking your workshop changed by world and reaffirmed a path to creativity in so many ways. We all need more vulnerability, self-care and FUN!
