4word: Chicago Calligraphy 101: Hand Lettering Basics
August 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm CDT
Join us for a fun evening of community and calligraphy! If you’ve always admired pretty lettering but don’t know where to begin, this introductory class is the perfect starting point. No need for special utensils or artistic expertise! Any pen and piece of paper will do.
In this workshop, led by Calligrapher and Artist Delaina Doshi, students will learn the fundamentals of hand-lettering. We will go over the basic strokes of lettering and how to create your own unique alphabet style. To end the class, we will letter a verse as a group.
