With Jordan Truster & Jillian Reece
This workshop is designed for beginners looking to start a new hobby or incorporate calligraphy into their other artwork. Students will start by learning the proper way to hold and use a brush pen, basic lettering terminology, and how to use guide sheets. After mastering the seven basic strokes, you will move into letter creation and connections. Participants will create a hand-lettered project at the end of class to implement what they learned. Instructors Jillian and Jordan will provide demonstration and plenty of individual attention throughout the class. After teaching hundreds of beginners in-person and thousands online, the instructors know what questions you will have (before you even ask them!), so no prior experience is required. A $20 supply fee will be due to the instructors at the beginning of class for your workbook, two large-tipped brush pens, two small-tipped brush pens, and project materials.

Jillian & Jordan are twin sisters who teach calligraphy through online courses and workbooks. In March of 2015, they founded Loveleigh Loops. Originally an online greeting card shop on Etsy, their business has grown to focus on teaching calligraphy through YouTube tutorials and instructional workbooks. In April 2017, they turned their Etsy shop into a physical store at craft shows in Tennessee and Ohio. They also began teaching in-person workshops based on their Brush Lettering and Copperplate Calligraphy workbooks, touring Cleveland, OH, Dayton, OH, and Nashville, TN. The Loveleigh Loops Calligraphy Community Facebook group was created in July 2017 and now has 6,000 members from all over the world!
