Calligraphy Workshop: Syracuse

On Saturday, May 3rd I hosted my first calligraphy workshop. I was blown away by the positive reaction when I announced that I would be teaching. When my class sold out I was shocked. My second workshop for May 19th sold out in only three days!

Syracuse CoWorks let me rent their space within the Syracuse Tech Garden. It was the perfect place - right in downtown Syracuse. Look at all of those new local calligraphers!

We had a mixed group of guys and girls, as well as right-handed & left-handed beginners! Meeting 14 people passionate about something that I've centered my creativity around was exhilarating. I felt like the three hours flew by.

My favorite local coffee roaster - Salt City Coffee - brewed fresh coffee that paired perfectly with Biscotti's cookies. And yes...I brought some of my plants. They are like my security blanket.

Each person got to take home their starter calligraphy kit that contained all my favorite essentials.

Thank you to all of those who helped make this workshop possible - specifically Craig of Kinani Blue, Syracuse CoWorks, and Aaron of Salt City Coffee!
