"You not only have fun, but we learned so much at the same time!" - student's feedback
If you've been meaning to try your hand at brush calligraphy or you've tried before but just couldn't get it right, this intro workshop will introduce you to the techniques and strokes in order to create the beautiful calligraphy that you so often see online. We will be learning fundamental stokes such as thin upstrokes and thick down strokes, ovals, the lowercase letters, and connecting letters. Half of the class will be an introduction to brush calligraphy and for the second half of the class, we will be apply what we learned onto greeting cards!
All supplies will be provided (and for you to keep).
By the end of the course, you'll have developed a foundation you'll need to continue with brush calligraphy after the course.
