In this enjoyable two-hour, one session workshop - open to total beginners -  students will explore the elegant art of pointed pen calligraphy with old-fashioned style “dip” calligraphy pens - the style used by many modern calligraphers, particularly in the wedding industry.

Practice will include the basic strokes that make up letterforms in the Pointed Pen style (Pointed pens are used to create Copperplate and Spencerian calligraphy). Students will practice lower-case and upper-case cursive-style letters while following sample alphabet guides, but will be encouraged to use their own creativity and this old technique to take the handwriting they already possess and create more elegant handwritten lettering.

 

All materials are supplied by the instructor, PLUS each student will receive a complimentary Calligraphy Starter Kit  which includes instruction booklet with sample calligraphy alphabets, 1 pen nib, 1 straight penholder and small starter supply of ink to take home and keep practicing.
