Gather + Create: Calligraphy Workshop with Shimmer & Stain

  • Park Winters 27850 County Road 26 Winters, CA, 95694 United States (map)

Learn the basics of hand lettering and create your very own farmhouse wooden sign! This fun and relaxed class, led by Courtnee Cloud of Shimmer and Stain, will teach you the basics of hand lettering, proper materials and some in depth education into calligraphy and how it’s accomplished. This is a great opportunity to learn a skill that can be applied to all sorts of DIY projects, from home artwork to addressing holiday cards!

Tickets are $95/person and include materials, as well as light refreshments. This intimate workshop will be held inside the dining room of our Victorian Inn. Space is very limited.


I'm Courtnee, a free spirit, fun loving, easy going artist. When I'm not chasing my crazy two-year-old son, Donnie, I'm moonlighting as a Modern Calligrapher. I’ve always had a love for letters and handwriting since I was in grade school. Being inspired by at least one letter from each teacher, I would try imitating it for the rest of the school year. Years later when I became pregnant with my son, I found my love for calligraphy. Practicing 2-4 hours daily, I was on a mission to gain the confidence and courage to stand out as an artist. Now I offer my calligraphy services for events and heartfelt keepsakes as well as hosting workshops teaching others how to learn calligraphy too! 

The Gather + Create workshop series provides a platform for creative professionals and artists to share, and teach, their passion with others. If you would like to partner with us to host a workshop, please email
