Vancouver Workshop - Fox and Flourish Modern Calligraphy

Hello Vancity Girlfriends,

I had the pleasure of taking the Meditation and Calligraphy series of classes which was a collaboration between Social Yoga and Fox and Flourish.  It was the perfect combination.  I loved it so much that I wanted to share the experience with you!

This week I'll focus on Fox and Flourish Modern Calligraphy classes.  I was super lucky because my Introduction to Modern Calligraphy Class was broken up into three one hour mini lessons instead of the usual 2.5 hour workshop at one time.  I learn much better in smaller chunks and it gave me time to build the skills and confidence for the next mini lesson.  
Meditation and Calligraphy Class

The studio is in a beautiful elegant space in Gastown and the class size is small.  It was perfect to learn and practice modern calligraphy.  Christina teaches well and goes step by step.  She also gives extra hands correction of pen positioning and posture.  It is an excellent learning environment and I love her ease and knowledge of calligraphy.  

It was such a creative and positive experience that I am looking at what I could learn next.  She has an Introduction to Brush Lettering Class and offers an Advanced Calligraphy Class only twice a year.  

If you are looking for a new skill to learn and all the tools to go with it, I highly recommend Fox and Flourish workshops.  Your supplies are packaged up beautifully and you will leave the class with all the skills you need to practice and do your own calligraphy at home.  I feel this was much easier than learning from blogs or YouTube.  That's the type of learner I am and I'm happy that I had the opportunity to finally take the Introduction to Modern Calligraphy Class packaged up with Meditation. My biggest challenge now will be finding things to write about using my Modern Calligraphy skills.
