Esque Script : Nashville Based Calligraphy

‘Tis the Season Holiday Calligraphy Class!

Posted by on Oct 23 2015, in Calligraphy, Classes

I’m excited to announce I’m bringing back my Holiday Calligraphy class this November! I’ll be teaching my ‘Tis the Season class twice on Saturday, Nov 21st 2015. I’m also offering my Calligraphy 101 class on Sunday, Nov 22nd 2015. Registration is open below. Class size is limited and both classes sold out last year, so sign up quickly if you’re interested! Hope to see you there!



It’s almost that time of year again! The cold weather is just around the corner and it’s time to surround ourselves with friends, family and fall/winter festivities. The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year. I love how it’s filled with so many opportunities to be creative with calligraphy. So I’ve decided to host a special holiday class to share projects you can easily make or do to celebrate the season!

Whether you’ve taken a calligraphy class before or never picked up a pen and ink this class is designed to inspire you to get creative with your holiday at all skill levels. This class will be a project based class so no previous calligraphy experience is needed.

Because this is a special class we will be experimenting with brush lettering and modern calligraphy styles. We will use a variety of tools, inks, papers and other supplies. Everything you need will be supplied for you.

Tis the Season Projects:

// Gift Tags // Decorative Cards // DIY Decor // Place Cards // Ornaments //

We will also discuss how you can give one of a kind gifts using your calligraphy skills. I’ll share tips and my resources for creating prints and other goodies with the class.

My goal is to inspire you to use the concepts you learn in this class year round for any holiday or special occasion. It’s a great time of year to dive into something new. Plus when it gets too cold to go outside, it’s a much better idea to grab some hot cocoa and get crafty. 😉

Come join in the fun!

Traditional and Modern Calligraphy with Molly Margaret : Calligraphy 101

Calligraphy Class Nashville

In this class we will take a look at traditional calligraphy scripts and how to expand into more modern styles. You will walk away with knowledge on using the unique tools involved in dip pen calligraphy, traditional and modern lettering styles, paper and ink choices and more!

This class will be a one day workshop from 9am-1pm.


We will explore how to use different nibs, pen holders, guidelines, ink and paper. The first part of class will be focused on traditional copperplate letterforms. It’s important to understand the foundations when learning a new skill. This part will give you an understanding of the main concepts of calligraphy.


In the second part we will look at how to expand your skills. We will dive into a more modern calligraphy styles, learn more about paper selection and go over any other questions!

My goal is to help you begin a journey in calligraphy. I’ll take time with each student to provide you with techniques and tips to further your skills.

Supplies list:

Oblique Pen Holder ( I recommend getting a holder like the Oblique Peerless Holder, Hourglass Adjustable Oblique Holder or Deco Oblique Holder. The Speedball holder will also work but it’s less ideal.) ** Left handers- please bring a straight pen holder. It’s easier to work with sometimes **

1-2 nibs of your choice. I recommend the following for beginners: Zebra G or Nikko G. You do not need the Ink Cage version of these nibs. The regular will be perfect.

I will provide you with paper and ink.

Class Time:

Sunday, Nov 22, 2015 9am-1pm SOLD OUT

Class Cost : $65

Class size: 4-14 students

Location: This Nashville calligraphy class will take place at Paper & Ink Arts, 240 Great Circle Road, STE 328, Nashville, TN 37228
