Faux Calligraphy and Christmas Ornaments Workshop

November 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Get ready for Christmas or just learn a new hobby by learning how to create beautiful lettering  using Faux Calligraphy.  We will be making small wooden ornaments that you can gift or hang on our Christmas Tree – or include in gifts or Christmas Cards!  **NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!**

We will go through the very basics of Faux Calligraphy, we will show you how to prepare your wood slices and how to write on them.  Once you learn this skill you will be able to use it on other art projects!  Each person will go home with their own set of supplies to make more for the holiday season. You will get your own oil ink pens, 8 wood ornaments and a string to hang up your ornaments.  **We will have more ornaments on hand if you would like to take more home in kits!

About Your Instructors: Tracy Klemens is a member of International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting and has attended numerous workshops, conferences and classes both in person and online in the art of traditional to modern calligraphy, as well as brush lettering. She is also studying to be an International Penman and completing a very intensive calligraphy course in Europe via correspondence. Tracy offers a very unique approach to teaching lettering that is not seen in other classes, which creates a proficient level of knowledge to her clients to begin to expand into other lettering forms independently.

Marisol Encarnacion co-owns Letter Create. Marisol comes from a family of admirable women who are creative and who laugh, A LOT! She grew up obsessed with stationary and textures. As she matured, her love for all things elegant and nostalgic became eminent. In 2015, she fell in love with the sound that a nib filled with ink to paper make, the flourishes and many ways to “draw” a letter is very satisfying. A move from New York to Wisconsin brought me to Letter Create. Letter Create is the perfect artistic home for her. Alongside co-owner, Tracy Klemens, we proudly offer modern day calligraphy workshops, retreats and stationary.

Spend a few hours with Letter Create in a fun, modern location, sipping refreshments and nibbling on bites while learning a new hobby!

This class will be at

Cafe Domestique – 1408 WILLIAMSON ST., MADISON WI
