WASHINGTON DC_Winifred Paper Class

I’ve been working hard at scheduling new cities to visit this spring, and I’m excited to announce I’ll be coming to both Washington DC and Kansas City in the next few months! I’ll head to Kansas City in March, and will be teaching at Mash Handmade. In April, I’ll teach at the Winifred Paper Studio, pictured here, in Georgetown. Both classes are now available for registration.

Additionally, I’ll be teaching two more classes at Mockingbird Domestics in Austin in March. Registration is now available.

Blue Eye Brown Eye_Holiday Gift Cards 2014
Anna Routh Photography

I’m excited to announce class gift certificates just in time for the holiday season! Here’s how it works:

I have dedicated two specific beginner class dates for gift certificates only. One Dallas and one Fort Worth location is available. When you purchase a spot in one of these classes, you are buying a spot for the person you wish to gift the class to for that specific date, time and location. After the purchase, I’ll be in touch with you and then mail you the card photographed above (a mint green card with gold foil printing) that states inside the recipient has received a beginner course with the date, location and time. I’ll calligraph the recipient’s name on the mint green envelope in gold ink and will mail you the card to give as a gift.

To purchase, visit my registration page, and purchase one of the GIFT CARD classes. The password for the classes are as follows:


I ask that these are for gift card purchases only. You’ll see the price is a little higher to cover the cost of the card plus shipping. These are the only two dates I am offering as gift card options. Purchases are non-refunable or transferable.

As always, please contact me with any questions! Happy Holidays!

Indian Summer Workshop_Brush Calligraphy Marfa Letterpress Suite

Cibolo Creek Ranch, nestled deep in the west Texas desert, what a magical place. This past summer I traveled with the bows and arrows team to Marfa to teach a mini calligraphy lesson at their Indian Summer Workshop. There, 13 attendees learned the ins and outs of floral design, styling, and a little bit about calligraphy, too. It was a wonderful trip, and here is a snippet of some of the styling and floral sessions (with the suite I designed for the photo shoot above). I’ll share more about my calligraphy class here later. All images were captured by Ryan Ray.

One of those weekends. When I traveled to New York in early September with my best friend, Anna, we had the most fun together and I’m lucky she was there to capture some of those moments. While there, I taught two beginner classes at Erin’s studio in Brooklyn. Big thanks to those who attended, you were two groups of lovely people.

Anna and I stayed at the McCarren Hotel and Pool in Williamsburg. This was a treat. It was still warm enough to hang by the pool and enjoy very yummy cocktails and very cute changing tents.

I was so very happy to have Anna along with me, and when I wasn’t teaching, we had the most fun exploring the city.

Highlights included drinks at The Ides (go for the view), exploring the Koons Retrospective at The Whitney, dinner at má pêche (pork.buns.), and drinks at The Carlyle (we felt fancy). Shout out to Anna’s friend from college, Hannah, who was great company and showed us around New York.
