We couldn't be more excited to finally announce the upcoming fall workshops at the Fresh Tangerine Studio! We are teaming up with Crystal of The Fancy Cat Studio and SWEATshirtDRESSshirt to offer two Modern Calligraphy Workshops.
Crystal’s passion for hand lettering began in high school when she first started making posters and decorations to promote football games. Many years later, her interest transformed into a business.
The Fancy Cat Studio was born at the end of 2014, after Crystal realized she needed an online space to house all of her work, most of which, were first produced out of boredom, or requests from her insanely supportive friends. Since then, Crystal’s work, consisting of calligraphy, product styling, and photography, has been featured on A Fabulous Fete, The Little Korboose, Pro Plan Cat, Daily Fancies (Fancy Feast’s Blog), and numerous weddings in the Seattle area. She has also had the opportunity of teaching to groups at Fresh Tangerine, Lululemon Athletica, and Seattle Bloggers Unite.
The first workshop is the Beginner's Calligraphy Workshop on Tuesday, October 13th from 6:30-9. This workshop is truly meant for beginners- those who have never picked up a calligraphy pen before. Crystal will be diving into the basics, including the anatomy of a calligraphy pen, dipping your pin in ink, understanding ink flow and pressure, basic script letter forms, and how to develop your own lettering style. Crystal will be telling you about how she got started in the business and you will have the opportunity to ask her any questions you have! This class will be small in size (only 12 students) to maximize your chances for learning! Click here to sign up.
The second workshop is the Intermediate Modern Calligraphy Workshop on the following night, Wednesday, October 14th from 6:30 - 9pm. This course is intended for those who have taken a beginner’s calligraphy course and/or are familiar with how to use an oblique pen + pointed nib, in this workshop, you will learn how to write the uppercase alphabet, how to mix gouache, ways to start your own calligraphy business, and how to address envelopes. The workshop will be 2.5 hours long with 2 hours of instruction and time to practice and get feedback from the instructor. Click here to sign up.
