Calligraphy workshops

I love sharing my passion for creativity through calligraphy, and teaching others not only how to use a calligraphy pen but how to practice and develop a style that is unique and memorable. I’ve taught over 1300 students, from the U.S. to Australia, for small private parties like bridal showers and for corporate groups like Facebook. Join me at an in person workshop to learn the art of modern calligraphy and how to create beautiful styled script lettering.

Even if you’ve never tried calligraphy before, or if you’ve dabbled in it, taken a class or two or learned online, but want to learn in person from a seasoned pro, this class is for you!

In person workshops are highly recommended to gain solid understanding of the craft, but if you live too far and can't attend a workshop in person or you're looking to practice specifically from my class alphabet worksheets, check out the downloadable alphabet templates!

Upcoming Classes

 

Private workshops can be arranged and tailored to fit your group’s needs. If you’d like to host a workshop for your company or group or friends, or host a class at your shop, get in touch!

 

Beginner classes

In the beginner class, you will learn how to properly hold an oblique calligraphy pen, gain an understanding of pen strokes and creating letterforms, controlling the pen, and connecting letters. In this course, you will also get an introduction to composition and styling, and personal one-on-one instruction and feedback from Angi, so you can walk away with all the tools you need for developing your skill and style.

What's included: 

A thoughtfully curated and beautifully presented complete set of beginner supplies including my instructional guide book with practice alphabets and tips on styling is included for you to take home for practice!

If you have taken my beginner class or a similar intro class with an oblique calligraphy pen, in the intermediate class you’ll dive further into style development, connecting letters, mixing custom colors, using gouache, flourishing and composition.

What's included: 

A thoughtfully curated and beautifully presented complete set of supplies including an upgraded pen holder, new nib, gouache color tubes, mixing jar, pad of practice paper, intermediate practice worksheets, my intermediate practice guide book with two alphabet exemplars and styling exercises, examples, and tips and extra goodies & surprises!

What my students are saying

 
Just a quick note to thank you very much for a wonderful, entertaining and educational calligraphy class.  I as well as my mom and aunt had nothing but glowing remarks and compliments on our drive home that evening. Your encouraging assistance went a long way to making it enjoyable as well as very educational in teaching a wonderful art and skill.  We all intend to hone in our skills and practice, practice, practice.  Hopefully one day we can revisit and take a refresher course. Until such time, thank you again for all your help, patience and teaching techniques.

Angi is my favorite and most inspirational calligrapher! I took both the Beginner’s Calligraphy class & Intermediate Calligraphy class with Angi after seeing her work on Instagram! She is a natural teacher, as she takes time to explain her methods/technique and will also make sure she gives constructive criticism so that you can actually learn and improve! Since taking her classes, I have been receiving many compliments about how my calligraphy has been progressing. She will walk around and is intentional about taking a look at all of her students’ work. For the intermediate class, she purposefully made it a smaller class to devote more individual attention to each of her students. Most of all, she is a great and friendly person who always smiles and is very encouraging. I would recommend her classes to anyone who is seeking to learn or improve!

Great, great class and we had so much fun! Today, as I review my materials and what I learned yesterday, I realize this is an art form that I want to pursue more deeply and work to become excellent. Angie’s class is not one of intimidation, but an avenue of confidence building. She makes it look easy and shows you the possibilities with practice, practice, practice. I’m craving ink and nib time now!I In a world of constant distraction, engaging in pen, brain and hand coordination, is a calming and beautiful gift.

I was thrilled to open up my Christmas present to find a registration ticket for Angi’s beginner’s workshop.  I eagerly anticipated the day set aside for me to enjoy a long time hobby.  I was not disappointed.  Angi was super sweet, warm in her interactions, excited about the instruction, wise in her advice, and encouraging our meager attempts to enter the beautiful art form of calligraphy.  Her tools were lovely and a great resource for us to use as we continue our practice.  The pace of instruction was appropriate and we all walked away with a piece that we created while at the shop.  I wanted to day to linger on, but I’ve enjoyed following her on FB and Instagram to keep me motivated to work at my skill and style.  Thank you, Angi.  You are inspirational!

This workshop was exactly what I needed in order to help me hone in my constant itch to do more with handwritten script. I’ve always been interested in calligraphy, and have purchased books, pens, nibs and other fun supplies to kickstart my enthusiasm. But there really is nothing as good as having someone stand over you, showing you the proper way to hold the pen staff, support you in understanding pressure & release and allowing you the freedom to bring your own style into the mix. Angi was perfect at all those things and more. It’s safe to say that I’ve spent hours practicing since the class on a daily basis! I can’t wait to take the intermediate workshop with Angi soon and have her help me out as I continue my journey in calligraphy! Thank you times a million!

Angi’s class was highly recommended to me and it did not disappoint. Not only is she a talented calligrapher and a patient teacher, she is extremely personable, witty and charming to boot. She gave very clear, easy to understand instructions for an art form that relies on extreme precision and technique. She treated each student with the utmost attention, walking around constantly to each one of us to correct, improve and demonstrate her craft. Additionally, her attention to detail is impressive. It was hard not to catch my breath when I walked in to find the most stunning tablescape with all the calligraphy swag. In fact, she was so prepared that she even included a separate pen for me to use because I’m a lefty! Angi made learning calligraphy fun and approachable and her teaching style and artistry are traits to be envied. Thank you, Angi!

I wish I could give her 10 stars! :) I attended one of Angi’s beginner workshops after my boyfriend gifted me with it for my birthday. I’d never tried calligraphy before and didn’t really know what to expect, but it was SO FUN! Not only is she a talented creative and an excellent teacher (very patient!), but the workshop was such an enjoyable and fun way to spend a day! I left feeling inspired to keep practicing and trying on my own and am looking forward to trying her intermediate workshop next. I highly highly highly recommend Angelique, Ink!

I absolutely loved going to the Beginner Calligraphy Class. First of all, not being artistic, I was terrified I would be very bad at calligraphy. I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did Angi the instructor make me feel at ease, she also explained everything in a very easy to understand way. From the basics of understanding the typography, to doing the drills to get accustomed to the feel of the pointed pen, I felt like the class flew by. I learned so much more than I thought.With a little more practice I can’t wait to take her Intermediate class. I cannot express how much fun and enjoyable learning with her was.
