In-person workshops

When I first started to learn brush calligraphy, I found that with quality instruction and tools, my journey started off on the right foot.  As a person who learns best in-class, I am excited to offer workshops because I believe it is beneficial for learners to have an instructor demonstrate live, receive individualized feedback, and gain the skills and resources to continue on their creative journey!  Calligraphy has brought so much joy into my life; through my beginner's workshop, I hope it can find its way into yours.


Grace Song Calligraphy Workshop West Elm

geared towards beginners, 

Getting married or know someone who is and wants to add an elegant, handmade touch to the stationery or decor? Do you keep a bullet journal and want to spruce up your pages with calligraphy? Maybe you're looking for a new hobby that will tap into your creative side or wanting to try something different during an afternoon with your friends. This 3-hour workshop gives you everything you need to get started and no experience is required. [Psst, good penmanship to begin with is not a requirement!]

What you'll learn

In this hands-on workshop, we learn about what tools and supplies are best and how to use them.  We build from the foundation up with the basic strokes and learn how they can be connected to form letters. Then we explore different types of letter connections and finally end with forming words.  You'll walk away from the workshop having the ability to apply your learning to personal art projects immediately. Tons of tips and tricks are shared along the way!

tools and supplies

The workshop fee includes a starter kit that you'll use in class and get to take home. It includes my personal favourite brush pens, different types of paper, and a set of worksheets with exemplars and areas for practice. 

I had always been interested in calligraphy, but didn’t know where to begin. Everything just ‘clicked’ while taking one of Grace’s classes. She breaks down each letter into simple basic strokes, and demystified the process of learning this new skill. I highly recommend taking a class with Grace if you’re looking to learn brush calligraphy the right way!
