Ruff House Art


The workshop series is centered around a fun, no pressure environment to learn more about a new technique or skill to help you be more creative day-to-day. Our workshops are a place for you to gather with friends and have a creative experience you can take with you. Will the workshops make you a master calligrapher, a professional florist or the next Picasso? Probably not, but there will be fun, friends and a solid foundation of skills built!

Modern Calligraphy with Pointed Pen

[ Featuring Heathyr Shaw of Meadowlark Ink ]

In this basic course, we’ll cover all you need to know to get started with pointed pen calligraphy, including supplies, nib prep, basic strokes and exercises, letter formation, and connecting words. All supplies will be provided, and there will be plenty of time for 1-1 support and Q&A. Participants will leave with the knowledge to create beautiful projects and build upon their modern calligraphy skills!

Heathyr Shaw is a lifelong artist with focuses in modern calligraphy, watercolor, and making events extra special by helping hosts add personal details for their guests. She grew up in the home of an art teacher, and has found pointed pen to be her most favorite tool. As an English teacher by day and artist by night, she loves to create art that emphasizes the beauty of the written word. From quotations to recipes cards to letters sent to friends living on the other side of the world, Heathyr loves to embellish letterforms and make people feel special in the process.
