"You not only have fun, but we learned so much at the same time!" - student's feedback
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 and an introduction to the uppercase alphabet.
By the end of the course, you'll have developed the foundation you'll need to continue with pointed-pen calligraphy after the course.
- 3.5 hours of hands-on instruction
- Intro calligraphy starter kit (pen holder, dinky dip, nib, ink, and a calligraphy guide with graph paper practice sheets.
