Oh Happy Day Classes

I’m so excited to announce a series of classes that will take place in our art studio here in San Francisco while we are in France. We have a fantastic lineup. I only put in classes that I am dying to take myself. Class sizes are limited so don’t wait to sign up.

Jonathan Canlas will be teaching a class on Holgas and a class on how to use instant pack film. (Which seriously takes the raddest photos.)

Andy Kane will be teaching his screenprinting class. By the time you are done you will be able to screenprint: tshirts, tote bags, and posters.

Alexis Birkmeyer will be teaching a beginners bookbinding class where you make a journal out of a vintage book. (These make the BEST presents.)

Melissa Titone
will teach a four week intensive Copperplate Calligraphy class. That is the pretty kind of calligraphy used on wedding invitations.

Meg Mateo Ilasco will teach a class on how to get a book published. Meg has published several books and will teach how to put together a book proposal and how to pitch it.

Jordan Ferney (that’s me) will teach a letterpress business card class where you print your own business cards! (I’m flying back for a commitment that week so I’ll be able to teach.)

    Argh wish I lived in San Fran!

  • Courtney says:

    If only I lived in SF!!

  • Georgie says:

    I agree with both Sally and Courtney! Any chance that you are going to offer anything like this whilst you are in Paris? Fingers crossed! (London to Paris is WAY easier than London to SF)

  • Caroline says:

    If only NY was closer to SF… any of those classes are totally worth a trip!

  • Nicole* says:

    oh my goodness gracious! i wish i could fly across the country and take a calligraphy class! i really want to learn in time to address my wedding invites :D

  • Travels in Heels says:

    I wish I lived there to take these classes..sounds fun!

  • Kathleen Frances says:

    If ever you went on tour like 'A Little Sussy's' Mini Art Weekend I'd be there in a NY minute! I'd love to take the Holga or instant film class!

  • TN says:

    Will you be doing anything in Paris by chance? I would be interested in learning some of these things here :-0 Just a thought if you were thinking about opening up a studio here!

  • Justine says:

    I am convinced that these classes need to "tour" around the country. Would LOVE to take em!

  • Funnelcloud Rachel says:

    This looks so fun! Too bad I can't commute to SF from Washington, DC!

  • jordan says:

    Thanks for the response on the classes! I'm definitely not planning on traveling. We aren't in the business of classes, this is just a way to take advantage of our empty studio.

  • angela hardison says:

    i wish i lived in SF. also, love the design on these.

  • COCOCOZY says:

    Wish I could come to San Francisco to attend!


  • magpiesandmagnolias says:

    OH how I am DESPERATE for calligraphy classes. i have had that on the brain for over a year. So sad to live so far away from San Fran.

    P.S. Uber jealous of you and Gabrielle + families move to France!

  • slyfox says:

    So jealous! I wish I lived in SF!

  • Kat says:

    I agree, these classes should be on tour! Any way it could come up north to Canada? Or at least to Seattle… Hope all the classes go well!
