Calligraphy Night Recap

We had such a great time last week at the Calligraphy Craft Night sponsored by Bing. We asked Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls to come teach us some basic calligraphy techniques. It was so great to meet all these new people and to learn calligraphy. Maybelle does such an incredible job branding everything so all her calligraphy supplies she prepared were gorgeous. Her and her husband made custom wooden ink holders and bottles of ink for each student. (PS: Maybelle teaches classes at Makeshift Society if you didn’t get to attend.)

Baggu sent over these wonderful reusable bags. They come in a ton of sizes and patterns. I bought my first Baggu five years ago and it is still in perfect condition after a ton of use.

For food this time we asked our friend Andrea Pimental to come up with a treat for attendees. She made these amazing Key Lime Pot de Creme packaged in little weck jars. And then she made the most adorable gingerbread spoons to eat it with. They were as cute as they were delicious.

Maybelle made this calligraphy guide with the steps for making the letters and Paul letterpressed them.

Bird and Feather sent each attendee these air plants in these awesome dip-dyed containers. They come in amazing colors and make the best gifts.

The lovely Sycamore Street Press sent over these letterpressed French art prints: Des Patisseries + Mais Oui!

And our friends at Divine Twine sent everyone a lovely spool of aqua twine.

A special thanks to Bing for sponsoring this great night and thanks to all the sponsors that helped us make such great gift bags.

    I would like to attend this workshop as it’s one of my dreams to learn such caligraphy. Have you thought of organising e-courses maybe?

    Greetings from Europe!

    Oh, what fun! Gingerbread spoons and prints and twine! Such sweet goodies. I wish it had not filled up so quickly. Next time I’ll be prepared at 9am sharp to sign up.

    Thanks for listing Maybelle’s course too!

    Oh how I hate being in NYC when these events come up! Is there anyway I could receive a copy of that calligraphy guide? I have been trying to master some calligraphy but would adore that guide for style.

    Thanks for considering it!

    Is it ever too late to learn calligraphy? I guess before the hands get too shaky! Anyway, the workshop itself (and those great food ideas) look fantastic. :-)

    So lovely! I took a calligraphy class in 4th grade taught by a Friar in a robe with a string for a belt, how unfortunate I squandered my calligraphy skills over the years. Please add me to the list of gorgeous letterpressed guides. Your craft classes look rad, I hope to attend one next time we are in the bay area.

    Merci!

    Wonderful….how I wish I lived in that area. Do you ever travel {about 2 hours away} to teach a class
    =)
    Thanks for such a happy place to visit.

    These craft nights look amazing, I’d love to attend one but I’m all the way on the easy coast! If you ever host anything by the Atlantic Ocean I’d be sure to participate :)
