Each workshop is designed to teach you the basics of different types of modern calligraphy, including the ever-popular pointed pen. In addition to expert instruction (dusts off shoulders), you'll also receive supplies and other take-homes to help you continue your lettering journey far beyond our time together. And bonus? It's really, really fun. Check out what participants have to say.

Who should take a Manayunk Calligraphy Workshop?
Um, everyone. Workshops are quite popular among DIY brides and grooms-to-be, but you don't have to tie the knot to learn calligraphy! Calligraphy can be used to address invitations, sure. But you can also use it to decorate your next soiree, create your own original artwork, write some pretty stellar love letters, design your next tattoo and so, so, so much more.
Do I need any experience with calligraphy?
A majority of Manayunk Calligraphy Workshops are designed for beginners. Maybe you've dabbled in calligraphy a bit, or maybe you have never held a pen before. Either way, you'll leave the workshop with a solid foundation of the basics -- and hopefully, a new love for lettering.
Workshops geared toward intermediate and advanced students will be clearly marked as such.
Do I need to bring anything?
For the beginners workshop, just your own creativity! Special workshops may requires additional supplies, but we'll let you know!
What if I reserved a spot, but can't make the class?
Because space is so limited, workshops are non-refundable. If you're unable to make the workshop, you're welcome to transfer your seat to someone else, but that should be done at least 24 hours before the workshop. Requests made after this time cannot be accommodated.
Do you do private parties or classes?
Why, yes! Private parties or classes are a great activity for bridal showers, girls' night in, birthday and holiday parties and more. You can learn more here.
Do you do online courses?
Yes! You can learn more here.
