12 Cheers of Harpoon Day 8: Modern Calligraphy & Ornament Lettering for Beginners

December 17, 2023 | 12:30pm
Harpoon Brewery
306 Northern Avenue
Boston, 02210 United States

Join us at our Beer Hall for a festive workshop of holiday fun and pretty lettering for beginners with Sip & Script! Whether you’re a stationery nerd, DIY Bride-to-be, or just a crafty individual, in this workshop you’ll be learning an introduction to modern calligraphy with a pointed dip pen and ink. They will cover all the basics and get you ready to add those special lettered details to all your holiday tables, Christmas trees, hostess gifts, gift tags, holiday card mailings and more!

Grab tickets here!

Class includes 1.5 hours of instruction and demonstration, their beginner’s calligraphy kit (two nibs, black ink pot, 2 letter guides, tracing paper and straight pen holder), and all materials to write on. Everything is yours to keep at the end of the workshop! Additionally, you will be lettering on a take home acrylic ornament at the end of the class time!

Feel free to come early beginning at 12:15pm, grab your seat, and purchase any food (food and drinks available to purchase throughout class too!). Class will start promptly at 12:30pm! You will find numerous parking options in the area, including metered parking on Northern Avenue and a Pay Parking Garage across the street from the brewery (also on Northern Avenue). Public Transportation is provided by the MBTA Silver Line.

Class Expectations: Yes, lefties are welcome too! This class is encouraged for someone who has never taken a calligraphy class before. We teach the basics and our expectation for you is to have ink flowing through your nib with enough confidence to be able to practice way beyond class. We love using tracing paper with the guides to help you build muscle memory and develop your own style!  If you have tried calligraphy out before, this class will be a great refresher and hopefully a chance to try some new supplies from our beginner kit that will re-introduce you to this lovely form of art!

A note on bringing guests under 21: We love to share this passion with kids. You are welcome to get a ticket for your child as long as you are comfortable with people around them having a drink or two. Kindly note that the venue requires anyone under the age of 21 be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
