This class is presented by the Birmingham Calligraphy Guild, and sponsored by the Hoover Public Library. Registration and supplies for your first class are free. The BCG and HPL ask that you join the Guild for subsequent classes to allow more patrons the opportunity to attend.
The talented Michelle Blanton presents and shares her expertise on modern calligraphy. Michelle teaches calligraphy and has her own business for the production of calligraphy pieces, with many followers on Facebook and Instagram. Modern Calligraphy script is for people who wish to create their own unique, script style using free-form, mix and match lettering. Even though the art of calligraphy is centuries old, it doesn’t have to be intimidating and can reflect the modern era. As daunting as it seems when staring to learn, it can be fun and liberating. In this class, you’ll learn that calligraphy and handwriting are two very different things, and what tools you need to find your personal style.
The Birmingham Calligraphy Guild, formerly known as Les Enlumineurs, seeks to promote the art of beautiful writing in the Birmingham metropolitan area and surrounding states.
Their membership consists of a very diverse group of calligraphers, from the hobbyist to the full-time professional and every level of interest in between. They come from Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Kentucky and many of their members travel to Birmingham to participate in the numerous learning opportunities hosted by the guild.
