Gale Nation Hand Lettering Classes

Come alone and make new friends (it won't feel weird - we promise!), sign up with a gal pal or bring your group! 

Chalkboard Lettering  

Gale will walk you through the basics of hand lettering and you'll complete a 16x20 chalk sign in class that's ready to frame and hang in your home. You'll receive a "class design only" tote bag full of supplies and swag, including a lettering guide and practice sheets. We'll feature yummy sips and sweets in the wonderful vintage atmosphere of Bella Patina's third floor classroom space. You'll receive personalized instruction and enjoy a fun time with new friends. 

Plus, you'll have an opportunity to shop Gale's space at Bella Patina if you like!

  • Simplified Calligraphy Lettering  

     Simplified Calligraphy Lettering is the less intimidating version of pen and ink calligraphy - easy to master but still beautiful! This is a more intensive, hands-on class than the Beginning Chalkboard Lettering but if you have an interest in learning more, you'll love it. We'll focus on "fake calligraphy" lettering with different types of pens and lettering styles. You'll receive an instruction booklet, all the different pens you'll need, paint, alphabet guides and practice sheets, an assortment of papers and note cards, and a keepsake tote bag - along with a fun gift. Our in class project will be note cards and a journal cover. 

    Simplified Calligraphy Class Dates:
    August 12 - 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
     Location: Bella Patina in the West Bottoms (1320 W 12th St, KC, MO) You'll receive an email with all the details on parking, what time to get there, and where to meet!
