A calligraphy set at a young age and a love for all things pretty grew into a business for Beth Hunt, owner of Beth Hunt Calligraphy. “I’ve always been drawn to art,” says Beth Hunt. “At a very young age, I received a calligraphy set for Christmas. From there what began as a hobby and doing something I love, has turned into a business where I teach others this beautiful art form.”
During college and after, friends would ask Beth to do lettering for them or address wedding invitations. Eventually word spread and what was once a fun, therapeutic hobby became Beth Hunt Calligraphy in 2009. Since then, her business has grown and over the past 3-4 years she has ventured into teaching calligraphy. “People began asking for lessons,” Beth says. “By teaching, I give them the tools to use to learn it and they can go home and perfect it on their own.” Beth continues, “People often think calligraphy is hard to learn and to do, but anyone can do it. It takes practice just like any art form.”
Beth offers several workshops including Intro to Calligraphy, Continuing Calligraphy and Intro to Brush Lettering. She also offers private Intro to Calligraphy classes and a 3-part Private Lesson Package. She has taught hundreds of people across the state since she began offering workshops.
Beth also sells original art that you can order, print out and hang in your office or home. These prints include hand-lettered quotes, bible verses, and silhouettes.
