Join us for a 2-hour workshop at the Stanley Marketplace (in the Stanley Taproom) to learn the tools and brush strokes of Handsome Love's modern alphabet.

Participants will be introduced to the basic calligraphy tools so they are able to design their own modern calligraphic alphabet and ultimately create their own custom signage. We will start by walking through the history and basic terminology of traditional calligraphy.
