Pointed Pen Calligraphy Workshop 29 Sept 2018

150.00

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. For centuries, it has been written with a quill dipped into ink, and not much has changed. The same tools that were used then to write historical scrolls are now used to create a mix of traditional (Copperplate, Spencerian, Italian Hand, etc ) and chic modern calligraphy.  This class is structured around learning the basic traditional letterforms before tweaking them to create a modern take on calligraphy.

Throughout the 3 hour introductory hands-on course, you will be personally assisted with any questions you may have as Joanna shares her tips and lessons learned from her own calligraphy journey.  You will be walked through

  • an introduction to the materials and tools,

  • learning how to load the nib with inks,

  • how much ink to load, how to hold a pen and proper posture

  • and of course, learning how to write the actual letters.

Perfect for both the beginner and hobbyist, learn traditional pointed pen calligraphy with a modern twist! With lots of hands-on practice, you’ll find that calligraphy is not only beautiful to look at, it is also very therapeutic, an addictive!

No prior experience needed.
