This intro workshop explores the art of Pointed-Pen Modern Calligraphy. Modern Calligraphy derives from letter-forms and structures of formal scripts i.e. Copperplate consisting of thin strokes, thick strokes, and ovals. All supplies will be provided (and for you to keep), we will work largely on the foundations of calligraphy which consists of holding the pen, drills, angles and basic strokes. We will then go over the lowercase alphabet, how to connect letters, and practice writing words.
By the end of the course, you'll have learned a new fun skill and you'll have developed a foundation you'll need to continue with pointed-pen calligraphy at home.
