Our next DIY Workshop is already less than 2 weeks away! I cannot believe it!! I am especially excited about this one because I think it will be one of the most useful. SO MANY of my couples use chalkboard signs as a way to inform guests throughout their wedding day. It’s a great (affordable) way to display your program, your bar drinks, your menu, or even your chair back signs.
But. The kicker is that writing with chalk really isn’t easy. I’ve had clients say “oh we’ll just ask someone” or “do you have good handwriting?” and even if I did (I don’t) writing with chalk is a whole other thing altogether. So luckily we have professional artist Sarah Perez, for our June 29th workshop to teach attendees how to perfectly craft chalkboard signs for weddings or events using a stencil method!
How To Make Perfect Chalkboard Wedding Signs ~ June 29th DIY Workshop
Attendees will get two boards at this class. One will be to practice and the other will be a take home. The end project will be a chairback sign – either Mr, Mrs, or whatever you dream up! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with :)
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Location: The Ulysses Room – 52 O Street NW, Washington DC 20001
Details: Attendees will learn the basic steps to create their own chalk board signs, including how to create the perfect work surface, the tools available to create different lettering styles, and tips and tricks for hand lettering for crafters of any skill level.
Using a transfer method, each participant will chose from different lettering styles and boarder designs to create their own, unique Mr. or Mrs. sign.
Sarah’s technique can be used to create large wedding program signs, chalkboard signage for your bar, desserts, or dinner spread, or really ANY signage at your wedding or event. This project is budget-friendly and easy to re-use again and again!
As always, we’ll have sangria from Simply Breathe Events, snacks from Eat & Smile, homebrewed tea from Runningbyrd Tea, and a new addition this time around, desserts from MeShell Desserts! We’ll also have some sweet tunes and yours truly hanging out. I mean, what more could you want?!?!
And in case you are wondering, the workshops are FUN (whether your are planning a wedding or not) – don’t believe me? Check out the amazing promo video Key In Films made for us after our first workshop! Hope to see you on the 29th! Get your tickets now :)
