    I want to learn how to do brush lettering. I find that I apply too much pressure (years of pen & ink), or that the pressure changes. Your lettering is perfect. I’m in Benicia in No. Cal. Sacramento is close enough for me to attend a workshop. I’m hoping you can accommodate beginners.
    Thank you,
    Cathy

    1. Hi Cathy! Thanks for your kind words, I truly appreciate it. Benicia is pretty close! I would absolutely love to have you in a workshop. My target audience is beginners, so it would be perfect for you! Stay in touch!

    Hi! I recently came across your instagram page and came here to see your full online world. I was actually thinking about looking up handlettering workshops in Vancouver BC (where I’m from). If you ever happen to come up here and want to hold a class, I’d love to attend (and perhaps help you set it up as well). 🙂

    1. Hi Dana! I would LOVE to come to Vancouver! Until then, are you on Periscope? I plan to broadcast some videos in the next few days. Also, I am preparing an online class that will allow students from all over the country and world to learn from me! Be on the lookout for early next year (2016)! 🙂 🙂

        1. Hi, Maira! I am working on an online workshop, but won’t probably have it ready until later this year or early next. In the meantime, check out the courses by Melissa Esplin on calligraphy.org (see the “Brush Script” class) or Amanda Arneill on amandaarneill.com. You can also download my worksheets on my Learn page (https://piecescalligraphy.com/learn). Hope that helps for now!

  6. I am always hunting for local workshops to improve my lettering and would love the opportunity to learn from you! I feel like I have the basics of brush lettering down – I’m looking for help fine-tuning what I’ve taught myself (and picked up from you on IG!). I would also like to learn more about the tools and different mediums one can use, I have a few different pens and have worked with watercolors and inks but know there are so many other options I’m not even aware of. I’m in Napa and am psyched you’re so close — please, please, please do a workshop!

    1. Hi Sarah! I would love to help you fine-tune your brush calligraphy! I am still learning watercolor brushes. Most of my experience so far is with brush pen markers. And there are TONS out there! I’m excited to teach you soon! 🙂 🙂

    Hi Sharisse!
    I’ve been a huge huge fan of your work, so you can just imagine my excitement when I realized you were located in Sac! (Currently Sacto doesnt have any modern calligraphy workshops…)The only workshop i’ve been to was BrownFox’s in SF but that’s a tad bit too far. Sac’s really close by so i’m hoping to come and take a workshop with you on brush callig! I find that my upstrokes always tend to be too strong :/ I can’t wait till you have your workshops! ❤

    Well this is exciting news! Can’t wait! I seem to have trouble with the BIG markers, like Tombow dual brush, whereas a Tombow Fudenosuke or Pentel Sign, I can get the proper up and down strokes just fine. I want to master the big brush! 🙂 Also, I want to learn how to write my letters more flowy and fun, not always so proper and inside the lines… but still looking put together and not messy! (Know what I mean?!)

    1. Hi Jules! I hear ya on the big versus smaller brush tips. And I certainly know what you mean! Sounds like you want a more modern style, but not too crazy 🙂 🙂 I’m looking forward to teaching you!

    1. Hi Jamie! I should be posting my workshop details soon… For what I have in mind (an introduction to brush calligraphy) it would be between $100-150. Depends on so many things – the class length, the supplies and worksheets I am able to provide, and the depth of the course. I really hope you can make it!

    Sharisse!!! Congrats on doing the workshop!!! There is not many if any better teachers to learn brush lettering from, atleast any i know of!! 😁👍
    Now second point if business! Im going to figure how to open my brush pens and refill them because i need a place to catch all my tears for not getting to attend a workshop. Even if i could make the drive from So-Cal to Sacramento( is along drive for my issues right now) if i could even get anywhere close to the tution, it is already sold out. I am very bummed about missing the Pieces Inaugural Workshop 😭😭😭.
    * adding a note here!* as you remember from the IG discussion the other day, there is a group of us So-CAL-igraphers trying to get some meetups together & potentially having Pieces Calligraphy make a guest appearance😉😉 We must have dreams right?
    Enough of my rambling, i have been realky sick and cold meds make me super chatty my wife was pointing out today, i am so proud of your accomplishments as well as being a part of the process since early. I know i have said before, but As i have said before Sharisse, you have been and are a huge inspiration to me and one of the biggest factors of my process. Thank you for being a part of my world and allowing me into yours!!

I came to the site as soon as I saw your post on Instagram, but the new Sacramento workshops are already sold out!
