Learn Calligraphy for Your Wedding: Vendor Spotlight on Manayunk Calligraphy

We love adding personal touches to every Blush + Blossom wedding, but not every bride knows how to incorporate authentic pieces of herself into her big day.  

 Learning calligraphy for your wedding is the perfect way to create something beautiful for your wedding guests to admire, and also provides a way to calm your nerves before your approaching wedding date.  

Kim Shrack of Manayunk Calligraphy is one of my favorite local calligraphers, not only because she is my sorority sister (Hey girl, hey), but because she is incredibly talented and makes stunning paper goods.  

Kim offers in-person workshops for those of us that get giddy over lettering and want personalized attention as we take on this feat.  Her workshops are designed to teach the basics of modern calligraphy, including pointed pen and brush script.  The new skills you learn can be used for addressing invitations, hand lettering escort cards, and creating wedding decor. 

Prefer to learn in the comfort of your own home, wearing sweatpants?  Or perhaps you don’t live in Indianapolis?  No worries- Kim offers online workshops as well.  If you care to try your hand at calligraphy for your wedding, you can purchase online modern calligraphy workshops here.  

You can also check out her custom work in your local Anthropologie and Homegoods!
