One of the goals on my 101 in 1001 list was to take a calligraphy workshop. I follow a number of calligraphers on Instagram and jumped at the first NYC workshop I saw, taught by Ashley Buzzy. It was so much fun to try something new, sip champagne, and get to know a few fellow New Yorkers. Because the class came with all the necessary supplies, I’ve kept everything out on my desk and gone back to practice a few times since the workshop last week. It’s so nice to step away from my laptop for a few minutes and do something with my hands and it doesn’t help that I think calligraphy is absolutely gorgeous! I still need a lot of practice but I’m slowly getting the hang of it.
If you’re interested in taking a calligraphy workshop (I’ve definitely seen it on a few of your 101 in 1001 lists too!), here are a few of the calligraphers I follow who travel and teach classes across the country:
