Introduction to Modern Calligraphy @ Kings River Winery

  • Kings River Winery 4276 South Greenwood Avenue Sanger, CA, 93657 United States (map)

Hand lettering is IN right now, people-- come jump on the train with me!

I am Shelley Borcherding, owner and head calligrapher of Scribble & Script. The Modern Calligraphy craze is every where you look, so come learn the fundamentals of this fancy font in my Introduction class. Through three hours of instruction (I know it sounds like a lot but it goes by so fast!), I cover all of the basics needed to get started on your hand lettering journey, from building capital AND lower case letters, basic letter connections, and styling. This interactive class setting gives you the opportunity to have FUN while learning a new skill. 

So what's included y'all!?

  • 12 page bound Practice Workbook printed on premium lettering paper

  •  Tombow Fudenosuke Soft Tip brush pen

  • Mirado Matte Black No. 2 Sketching Pencil 

  •  Sharpie oil based gold paint pen 

  • 8x10 Blank Canvas to custom letter as the craft portion of class

  • Hand lettered goodie bag customized with your name

  • One Complimentary Glass of Wine provided by Kings River Winery

  • Delightful banter and fun loving environment 

I know, right? SOUNDS AWESOME. 

See you there, future amazing letterers! 

*Cancellation Policy* I get it, things happen. I have a 2 and 4 year old- I've been there. However, I put a ton of love and work into prepping your workshop stations, so cancellations must be made 7 days prior to the class in order to receive a refund. If cancellations are made after the 7 day mark, we can make arrangements for you to pick up your workshop supplies up to 2 days after the class has taken place. Tickets are NON-transferrable, meaning you CAN NOT change your class to a different date without requesting a refund and purchasing a separate ticket. Don't even ask, don't make it awkward.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Though there is alcohol being served, there is no age requirement! We have had kids as young as 6th grade come to workshops and fully enjoy themselves.

What can I bring into the event?

 Nothing is required of you! You are welcome to bring in your own snacks and drinks if you're not a wine person.

What's the refund policy?

Please see explanation above!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope! I'll have your first name on your place setting so that keeps attendance in line.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

It is NOT. If you miss the workshop last minute, the ticket is NON REFUNDABLE. If you ask to come to a different workshop date, you need to request a refund within the appropriate amount of time and then re-purchase a ticket for the desired class date. 

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

I do need to know the first names of all attendees to customize your gift bags, so if you go by something other than the name you register with, please send me an email to
