Contrary to popular belief, calligraphy and handwriting are two very different things (although, this will help improve your handwriting). Anyone (yes, even lefties) can learn how to write beautiful calligraphy—it just takes practice and patience. That’s why our beginner’s workshop in contemporary, pointed-pen calligraphy will teach you everything you need to get started, without ever making you feel intimidated. We’ll go over equipment (pen holders, nibs, different ink types, papers, etc.), technique (holding the pen, dipping the pen in ink, understanding ink flow and pen pressure), lowercase letterforms, basic layouts and troubleshooting.
Spend an evening learning how to letter your own beautiful envelopes, invitations, chalkboards, wedding details and more. The possibilities are endless.
What you’ll get (and keep):
- 2.5 hours of personalized instruction
- 1 pen holder
- 2 copperplate nibs
- 1 pot of black ink
- 1 alphabet set
- customized practice pad
