What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Just Pick Up A Pen: Calligraphy 101 with Doris Füllgrabe
August 21, 6:30pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at Friends Work Here
About this FieldTrip
The only thing more mesmerizing than scrolling through videos of calligraphy on Instagram is picking up a pen and doing it yourself.
Handwriting not only sparks creative thinking and helps organize ideas, it has the same calming effect on the brain as meditation.
Even - especially - if you think your handwriting is “bad”, this 90-minute FieldTrip is an invitation to unplug, relax, and learn how to write with beauty and intention.
In this abbreviated beginners workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare your nibs and use a dip pen and ink. We’ll practice lower and uppercase alphabets and you’ll walk out with a basic understanding of cursive letterforms and calligraphy.
The materials are included and yours to keep!

Hello! My name is Doris, nice to meet you. I’m a freelance letterer and calligrapher. I’m available for commissions, and I love collaborating with designers. My goal is to provide a personal, one of a kind touch that makes your project extra special. For the times when a font - even if it’s all nice and brushy and cursive - just won’t do, call me.
