Card Making Workshop Workshop with Claire Vendetti at Shop Made in: DC

This class is exclusively for members of the Harvard Club and their guests. Space is limited. All materials included.  Enjoy wine and a 10% discount on purchases. 



Join Claire Vendetti, owner of Billie Claire Handmade, for an afternoon of hand lettering at Shop Made in DC - Georgetown!

During this two hour workshop, Claire will take you from start to finish on how to create your very own hand lettered cards. Starting with a catchy phrase, students will learn to organize their text for the best visual emphasis; and will then practice three basic hand drawn fonts that can morph into a myriad of fancy letterforms. From there, Claire will walk you through her three favorite composition strategies for creating a well-formed lettering design.

Each student will get one-on-one guidance on how to achieve the best layout for their piece, and then they can begin sketching in their creative fonts! The class will top everything off with a lesson on adding key embellishments to finalize your unique design. This hand lettering class is less of a formal calligraphy class and more of an "embrace your own writing style" class!  If you're up for embracing your own handwriting, learning how to build some new fonts, and putting together a lettered phrase - this is the space for you.

This class is open to all skill levels - no prior hand lettering experience required.  We are grateful to Stacey Price, co-founder and chief localist, for arranging this class.
