Workshops at Common Room Studio!

DC area friends! We have a couple of fun events coming up at Common Room Studio, and we’d love for you to join us! There’s a modern calligraphy workshop, and a holiday garland and table styling workshop that is the kind of workshop that I’ve always dreamed of hosting. You’ll be able to address your holiday cards using your newfound lettering skills and decorate your holiday table with a beautiful floral garland – and there are cocktails involved! Plus, if I can find room in my schedule, I’m hoping to schedule a couple of holiday crafting socials focused on creating DIY minimalist wreaths and wrapping holiday gifts. Details below!

Architecture of a Table with wldwst
Saturday, December 16, 1 – 4 pm

Time to deck the halls! Floral stylists Lori Tran of Wild Green Yonder and Colleen West, known together as wldwst, will share their secrets for styling the perfect holiday table and teach you how to make a garland that you can use as a centerpiece or to decorate your holiday mantel, all while enjoying seasonal cocktails. It’s going to be quite a party! You should see the mood board that Lori and Colleen created for the workshop – I can’t wait to see it all come to life! Spots are limited, so grab your seat right here!

Thursday, December 14, 6 – 9 pm

San Francisco-based calligrapher Brianne Connolly will visit Common Room Studio to teach a special installment of her beginner modern calligraphy workshop! Brianne will go over the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, including correct hand position, understanding pressure and how it relates to ink flow, both uppercase and lowercase alphabet, and numbers. The class is limited to just 10 spots, so grab your seat right here!


I’m also trying to find some time in my schedule for a couple more informal crafting socials during the week. I’m thinking of one centered around making minimalist holiday wreaths, and another around making DIY gift tags and wrapping holiday presents. DC friends – if you’d be interested in attending one of our crafting socials, leave a comment below letting me know if you prefer midday or evening events!
