These photos were taken back in January 2020 by our friends at Simply Sweet Root {who also provided these beautiful floral arrangements – check them out for your a la carte event floral needs in the DMV area!}, and little did we know this would be our only full-sized workshop of 2020.

After this set of classes in our Old Town, Alexandria studio, we would go on to postpone all of our Spring/Summer workshops here in Alexandria, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Orange County and San Diego. 

We’re so grateful to be able to offer our at-home learning options via the Starter Kit + Video Tutorial, and even have a private virtual class coming up this month. If you’re interested in learning more about our private group sessions, both in-person and online, please send us an email at

It’s vital to have the proper tools and instructions when learning pointed-pen and both our in-person and at-home options provide tools for beginners curated to work well together. You can find full details on our starter kit here & sign up for in-person 2021 workshops through our website here.

Thank you for helping us keep the art of pointed-pen calligraphy alive…both in-person and from the comforts of your own homes!
