Learning Calligraphy

May 19, 2014

My friend Sharon invited me to attend an awesome workshop this past weekend. She, along with her very talented partner Anna, created a company called “New Old Fshnd” here in Philly. They host “curated workshops with the perfect mix of skilled learning, delicious eats and great conversation.” Think Pinterest turned into a reality.

Their latest workshop was all about learning calligraphy with famed calligraphy expert Lindsey Buck of The Hive Studio (she flew in all the way from Ohio for this!). I had an absolute amazing time learning Lindsey’sย tips and tricks for beautiful calligraphy writing, and I can’t wait to keep practicing this new skill. The best part was that she showed us how to digitize our calligraphy in Photoshop and Illustrator – perfect for upcoming blog posts friends. Take a peak at my photos below and make sure to sign up for the next New Old Fshnd workshop, coming soon!

(P.S. Anna catered the whole event and her culinaryย skills were TO DIE FOR. They’re the real deal folks!)
