Calligraphy Lessons.

Last week I took a calligraphy class with one of my friends in Boston’s North End. I’ve always admired the delicate details of invitations and menus done in calligraphy and I was hoping to pick up the skill in time for addressing my own wedding invites. Here is what I learned: it’s a lot harder than it looks! It was great to understand all of the basic strokes and techniques, but I think it’s going to take a lot of practice before I start writing up cards on my own. I had lots of fun though, and loved looking at all of the different styles in Liz’s gorgeous studio space. For all of the Boston readers, if you’re interested in taking a class, check out Lettering By Liz — I recommend it!

    Taking a calligraphy class is such a cool idea. I always admire the work of calligraphers … it takes some serious talent and practice!

    I can’t even tell you how jealous I am right now. My mom is actually amazing at calligraphy but not the best teacher and I’ve always wanted to learn. So fun!

    Absolutely love the style! I have always wanted to try it out – it sounds like the perfect reason to get myself over to the North End 🙂
