ABOUT YOUR TEACHER:
Liz Roessler is a self-taught, professional calligrapher based in Boston with over 30 years client experience. She has been obsessed with letters ever since she could hold a crayon in her hand and immersed herself in learning calligraphy as a young adult. In her 20’s, she began doing a wide variety of calligraphy work for events, menus, chalkboard signs, invitation design, certificates and custom lettering art commissions for clients.
Over the past decade, she has enjoyed “sharing the lettering love” by teaching 100’s of in-person and virtual classes to individuals, dozens of cool companies for their employees, to social groups, at museums (including the MFA and ICA), in classrooms (including Boston and Brookline Public Schools), and at colleges (including BU and Northeastern).
She has appeared many times on-location for “live” calligraphy and hand-engraving glass bottles for clients including Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, J. Crew, Cartier, Lululemon, Diptyque, Crayola, Montblanc, Lafroaig, Shinola, Maker’s Mark, Nordstrom, Sugarfina, L’Oreal, and Blick Art Materials.
Liz has taught classes for dozens of companies including Microsoft, Pfizer, Zappos, HubSpot, Google, DraftKings, EF Education, Wayfair, Toast Tab, Arnold Worldwide, Mullen Lowe, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital, The ‘Quin House and The Harvard Club.
