Tips from a Wedding Calligrapher
Congratulations! You're engaged and you're planning your wedding. Enjoy this time and cherish the moments! You might be thinking "Ha! That's easy for her to say! My pocketbook is empty and I'm ready to have my life back!"
Trust me, I've been there. It was only a year ago that I was thinking the same thing!
Hopefully, these tips will help guide you:
Most calligraphers have a passion for this beautiful art. Otherwise, I can't think of anyone who would spend 3-5 minutes writing an address on envelope! Trust their advice and expertise.
Of course, if you have questions, you can always reach out to me at email@example.com.

Brooke Holden Calligraphy is teaming with Ashley Sellars of The Script Shop to offer Copperplate and Modern Calligraphy workshops in the Myrtle Beach area.
In our workshops, you will focus on learning the calligraphy alphabet, formation, posture, the right supplies and tools and more. The workshops will be split into two sessions with two calligraphers, teaching the art of calligraphy.
What do I need to bring?
All supplies will be provided, to include: nibs, ink, calligraphy paper, ink jar and more. You should only bring yourself.
How long will each session last?
The workshop lasts four hours.
The Copperplate session and modern calligraphy sessions will be divided into sections. You'll spend time being introduced to the art, learn form, pressure and more before diving into practice. Each session will last approximately 90 minutes.
What will I learn?
Brooke and Ashley will teach you the basic fundamentals of calligraphy. Our goal is to give you the confidence to keep you pursuing calligraphy.
Who are my teachers?
Brooke Holden of Brooke Holden Calligraphy began teaching calligraphy in the Myrtle Beach area in 2016. She has taught hundreds of students through workshops, videos and calligraphy kits.
Her love for calligraphy started in 2014 when she offered to address a friend's wedding envelopes. From there, interest grew in her work and she began offering calligraphy and lettering design services to clients across the U.S.
Brooke is a self-taught calligrapher. She is a member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting.
Her latest endeavor is mastering Copperplate and Spencerian calligraphy.
Brooke is currently celebrating her first year of marriage with husband, Steven. The couples resides in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. When Brooke isn't teaching workshops or fulfilling calligraphy requests, you can find her with a book in hand at the beach or running with her pups, Georgia and Finn.
Meet Ashley Sellars
We are excited to announce Ashley Sellars is teaching Copperplate Calligraphy. After three years of fulfilling wedding requests, creating custom address stamps and commercial logos, Ashley will teach her first workshop.
Ashley Sellars, founder of The Script Shop, began her calligraphy journey in 2013. Ashley studied calligraphy and took several courses from Melissa Esplin, founder of Calligraphy.org.

Ashley is also a member of the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting.
Ashley lives in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina with her husband, Gideon and two daughters Caroline (3) and Hannah (11months). They have been married for 6 years and love how fun life is with two girls. Ashley is an avid runner and an exercise enthusiast who is always up for a good race!
