On Saturday, my mom and I went to Michele Hatty Fritz of Meant To Be Calligraphy’s Introduction to Contemporary Calligraphy workshop in the Capitol Hill area of Washington, DC. The course was held in the Karson Butler Events studio, which was decorated to the nines. I love it (see tons of photographic evidence below). The class was absolutely amazing. I learned so much – as did my mom. I want to go back and do it all over again – and recommend that you sign up, if you live nearby (or hey, if you want to travel to DC for a fun trip). Michele takes you step-by-step through the basics, then you get to spend the last 45 minutes practicing. I struggled at work today, as all I wanted to do was go home and pick up my pointed pen and write.

Want to see more of Michele’s work? Look at her wedding work (including ours!) and media features. Talk about learning from the best!
