One of our favorite nearby shops, Confetti, hosted a fun calligraphy workshop over the weekend. Jacqueline was able to go and snap these awesome photos that perfectly capture the fun and colorful aesthetic of the store. Lucky for our local readers, you can have the same experience! Confetti is giving away a seat at their next calligraphy workshop on April 2nd… more details on that below.
I haven’t been friends with Briana, owner of Confetti, for very long… but it didn’t take much time to realize we had a ton in common and a few mutual friends. The day we were introduced, we immediately began scheming creative plans together and I knew Confetti had to be our next Local Love feature.
I pop in often for greeting cards. My background is in print design, with lots of hours on the letterpress… so I’m always hoarding cards and sending snail mail to my friends. The selection is gigantic and I love supporting local artists and studios. It’s pretty much the one stop shop for creative party and office supplies.
In regards to the workshop Jacqueline attended, the first calligraphy class was such a success, Briana already has more events, parties, and collaborations in the works. She is offering a spot at the next calligraphy workshop on April 2nd beginning at 11:00 am to one of our local readers (details for entering below)! You’ll be learning from the talented Karen Gall. If I can shuffle my schedule, you can bet I’ll be there, too.
I have to admit, I was excited yet a little bummed to receive text messages from Jacqueline during the class. I really wanted to attend but was traveling and couldn’t make it. Didn’t she do a phenomenal job for her very first time with a calligraphy pen?
Of course it wouldn’t be a true Local Love post if we didn’t wrap it up with something Dayton or Ohio inspired. You can show your love of our city with prints, apparel, cards, and even coffee cups. There are so many fun things to choose from!
Stop by Confetti for gorgeous goodies, but most of all to support Ohio artists (like our favorite Cleveland based calligrapher, Karen)! It’s such a happy and inspiring store. Their online store is currently being updated, but be sure to check them out on Instagram. You guys will love it… I promise!
