Please join The Adirondack Ink for our Ink & Drink® "Lettering with Chalk and Chalkboards" Workshop at Empire Farm Brewery!
The Ink & Drink® "Lettering with Chalk and Chalkboards" Workshop is designed to help participants understand the fundamentals of lettering with chalk and chalkboards step-by-step instruction - this is a great "next step" for those who have taken our "Hand-Lettering for Beginners" workshop (but not required). Participants will learn how to season their chalkboards, how to manipulate chalk (and other tools too!) to create a well-composed project, and learn about the difference between traditional chalk vs. chalk markers, slate vs. chalk paint, and more! Speaking of projects, participants will receive a take-home kit of supplies and a wood framed slate chalkboard to create their own sign to bring home!
Your RSVP will include:
•Two hours of hands-on instruction
• A take-home supply kit including a pencil, sharpener, ruler, pack of Crayola white chalk, pack of Crayola colored chalk, and a wood framed slate chalkboard (double-sided).
• A take-home project of creating your own chalkboard from our examples or feel free to make your own design!
• A complimentary drink of your choice from Empire Farm Brewery
• Full access to Sarah's experience and knowledge with lettering and starting a lettering business
Do I need "good penmanship" to participate in this workshop?
Not at all! Some of the best calligraphers "write in disguise" during the day and at the office. This workshop will introduce you to the necessary tools. Once you know how to use them, they'll take control of the rest!
Are there age restrictions?
Heck no! All ages are welcome. This venue has a reputation for being family-friendly and we embrace that mindset and invitation at our workshops too. Please note that you must be 21+ older with a valid ID to be served any beverage containing alcohol.
What if I'm left-handed?
No worries, Calligraphy and Hand-Lettering doesn't discriminate amongst lefties and righties. In fact, past left-handed participants have succeeded at the same pace as their right-handed friends.
What if I don't drink alcohol?
That is perfectly fine and we want to make sure that all of our guests are comfortable. This venue happily serves non-alcoholic options.
