Contemplative Calligraphy

June 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT


“Calligraphy is an art form…to express the very souls of words on paper.”
― Kaoru Akagawa

There are many ways to express the creativity inherent within us all and some – especially when approached contemplatively – become a form of meditation that nourishes our soul in ways beyond our imagining.

Connect with KariAnn Daughtry, joining us from her home in Chicago, as she invites us to explore the history, contemplative benefits, and beginning techniques of hand lettering.

Moving the pen on the paper becomes a moving meditation, a stress-relieving resource for equanimity and harmony of body and mind. In this workshop, we will explore the Uncial hand, which is famous from the Irish Book of Kells.

This is a beginning level class, open to all. No experience is necessary.


Saturday, June 18th



9:30am – Noon Central, Via Zoom



$45 per person, partial scholarships available


Virtually: (via Zoom)

2) the 3.8mm Pilot Parallel Pen (the green one) is ideal, or a broad-edged pen such as a dip pen with the Speedball C-0 or C-1 nib. The guide sheets we will be using are measured for the 3.8mm pen.
