Join Mel from Greta Jane Paper Co. for a two hour wild ride in an uncomfortably hilarious hand lettering workshop at Outside The Shape! 

“With a genius new class, the writer and star of Greta Jane Paper Co. is nearing the Oprahsphere. AT this point, she is practically Oprah in librarian glasses” is what the Calgary Herald would probably write about her. Mel is just a common girl, with common anxiety. Her gross, unattractive and inept flaws are portrayed and embraced as awkwardly funny rather than worthy of despair and her class will make that abundantly clear to you.   

Mel is a local business owner from Paris France that taught herself the ever evolving art of hand lettering. This introductory workshop has something for everyone – from beginners who have never used a brush pen to seasoned letterers who want to be re-inspired. In this session you will learn fundamental brush lettering strokes, connecting letters and words, alphabet practice as well as faux modern calligraphy techniques. You will also learn that don’t have to go to be a born calligrapher with an innate Shakespearean hand at writing to learn lettering. Just look at the intricate beauty of cobwebs. And spiders make those with their butts.

Tickets are non refundable but an be transferred after purchase
