Workshop –  Intro to Modern Calligraphy with Haworth’s

Caitlin Wolff

Hi, I’m Caitlin!  I discovered my love for calligraphy while teaching myself with a kit from Etsy in preparation for handmaking my own wedding invitations in 2014.  Soon after, I launched my own calligraphy business called The Curly Quill and was honored to be nominated for Minnesota Bride Awards in 2016  and 2018, and taught Intro to Modern Calligraphy at Minneapolis College of Art & Design.  Life looks a bit different with a full time job and kids, so I’ve put my business on hold, but still love sharing my skills in workshop settings.


Industry-wise, my professional background is in Interior Design (where are my Stouties?).  I am a Social Spaces Specialist with Haworth, and my habits of having too many jobs at the same time has also made me unusually knowledgeable about coffee, fine chocolates, paper goods, wedding planning and floral design.


In my spare time, I enjoy hot tea, anything floral print, French macarons and exploring new creative outlets.
