i spent a wonderful autumn morning at TOOLRY in loveburg this weekend for a calligraphy workshop taught by kathleen of leen jean studios. the space is always beautiful, and bekah, kathleen and carrie did a fantastic job of making it extra special on this day.
everyone is instagramming their place at the big TOOLRY table; each space was beautifully appointed with brand new supplies and the most amazing goodie bags.
my space: i love it when i feel cared for like this and when i know i will have everything i need.
the air was scented with just-out-of-the-oven cookies and coffee and the leafy-smokey smell of october gently blowing in through the bright yellow doors
kathleen's love of her art was contagious. i loved learning from her.
calligraphy is not as easy as it might appear. there was a lot of practice and getting the feel of the pen in our hands and ink on the paper.
my notes are almost always visual.
my tablemate and co-calligrapher meredith is left-handed. i completely admire the extra work required of a lefty to create lovely letters. and the extra-inky hazards they encounter.
i am so grateful for TOOLRY, this space was created with love and with the soul purpose of bringing together kindred creatives in a beautiful and supportive environment.
more TOOLRY love here and here.
