Calligraphy Christmas Card Pointed Pen Workshop

Christmas Card Pointed Pen Calligraphy

with guest instructor Maxie Calligraphy

Nothing beats the genuine delight on a loved one’s face when they realize the Christmas card they received is handmade! The card itself becomes the gift!

Join me and fellow calligrapher Maxie Calligraphy for this special workshop. 

You will learn how to use the calligraphy tool called pointed pen in making easy-to-follow and elegant-looking holiday card designs.

We will draw beautiful lines and shades, starting with the basic strokes to get your hand acquainted with the tools. We will then build up to creating wreaths, Christmas tree designs, and calligraphy medallions.

This is a great introduction to pointed pen calligraphy, which provides a great starting foundation to learning letterforms and alphabets in the future.

Come as you are – no prior experience is required! Everything you’ll need from mindset to supplies, is included!

Who this is for



You have zero experience (bad handwriting welcome here!). You’re creative and want a new outlet. Or, you don’t identify as creative but love stretching your comfort zone.


You did calligraphy in a former life, and you want to get back to it. You could use a kickstart or refresher.


You want live coaching, feedback, or formal instruction. You can’t figure out why yours doesn’t look like the youtube video.

real time learner

You prefer a live experience, to show up to, because you know a self-paced course will collect dust on your shelf. You believe learning with others is more fun.
