Zero Class for New Members

New members: If you are completely new to calligraphy, please tell Trish Meyer if you are interested in a Zero Class. This covers materials (nibs and holders, ink, paper), where to buy supplies, and tips and techniques that experienced calligraphers often take for granted! Fee is $20 for 4-hour class. (Starting with 2018–19 season, new members will receive a $10 discount on any class or workshop, so cost could be only $10!)

Please see the Membership page if you’d like to join!

Zero Classes are scheduled roughly twice a year. The next class is scheduled for Sunday, September 9, 2018, 10am – 3pm in Trish' studio in Sandia Park.
