Learn the basics of brush lettering, the joys of happy mail and envelope art, as well as creative lettering projects YOU can do in this hands-on, project-filled guide to modern calligraphy.
This book can be used to guide individual progress, but also functions well as a family-friendly, let’s-create-something-super-cool-tonight activity book. All projects are broken down step-by-step with accompanying photographs. I selected each project for its easy-to-do value and practical use potential, and offer creative variations. The goal is to introduce you to the concepts and then send you off on your creative path.
It’s time to reconnect with others through our words, our art, and send our messages of support through the time-honoured skill of letter writing. So join me on this creative journey and let’s make some crazy beautiful letters together!
Want your special event invitation to stand out above the rest? Want to send out Christmas cards that will knock their stockings off the mantle? Consider the elegance of a hand-lettered envelope. Each envelope is a work of art, completed with time, care, and hard-earned calligraphy skill. Service is for mailing address only. Basic fee is $2.00 / envelope, not including stationary / supplies. Specialty ink would also increase the fee. Contact me for a quote.
NOTE: A custom designed return address stamp can be created to match the envelope address style, be sure to request this option in your quote if required.
Calligraphy can be on paper, stone, tile, leaves...or any other smooth surface you'd like to use as an embellishment on your event tables. Basic fee is $1.50 / card, not including stationary / supplies. Specialty ink would also increase the fee. Contact me for a quote.
Have a special event coming up and want to add a bit of chalkboard sweetness? I can create boards to suit any occasion, incorporating a blend of lettering and illustration. I even offer a board rental option - complete with lettering / design work - then just return the board when your event is complete. Contact me for a quote.
Want a more rustic style? I can create custom made signs on rustic pallet wood, cottage pine, old fence boards, etc.
All signs come complete with base coat, aging / distressing of wood if required, lettering, and are sealed with a matte finisher. Contact me for a quote.
