 She taught us how to mix gouache into ink and walked around writing letters for us to imitate.

The class was held at Knot & Bow, a brand I adore! They make my favorite packaging supplies. (So many heart things!)

Lauren Essl, from Blue Eye Brown Eye,  is based in Texas, and I'm thrilled I had a chance to meet her and take her class while she was in town. There's always more to learn with any craft and her tips and tricks were incredibly helpful. I loved meeting other calligraphy enthusiasts in the class as well! It's such a warm and creative community. If you ever have the opportunity to take a class -- in any creative realm -- I highly recommend! It's one of my favorite things to do. ♥
