Dear Fellow Calligrapher,


I want to share this video that was shared with me.  I enjoyed it and it was the tenth time fate tapped me on the shoulder reminding me that I need to keep working on my calligraphic skill.  I realized that I may not be the only one who wants to “kick it up a notch”.  So I decided to start a monthly help session and call it INK Up.

Joshua Foer: Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Hopefully you have taken the time to watch the video. After I watched the video, I decided for my benefit and possibly yours to start a Saturday morning help session. This is two whole hours of me and you sharing our knowledge with pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy.  This is for everyone, experienced and beginners alike. Got a project you want some advice on? – bring it.  Need some creative peeps around to get your juices flowing? –  come and join me/us.  This is our time to learn and practice with likeminded peeps.


The way I will structure these help sessions is as follows:


  1. It will be exactly two hours from 10 am to noon.
  2. Anyone can come. Don’t be afraid – this is a loving, safe & creative environment for beginners and experienced calligraphers
  3. It will happen once a month and the dates are posted at  If you click on the classes’ link a calendar will pop up. Please check here for the dates.
  4. It will be out of my home – call or email me for the address and directions.


I am looking forward to you coming and joining me for these help sessions.  Also did I mention that these are FREE help sessions? They are FREE. Well, if you want to bring goodies to share (I’m partial to many baked goodsJ) it would be very “sweet” of you.
