Calligraphy II: Connections

Instructor: Caitlin Dundon, One Heart Studio

Date: Monday July 17th

Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: Venue Ballard, 5408 22nd Avenue NW


In this 2-hour class (a follow-up to Intro to Calligraphy) we will work with pointed pens and black and walnut ink on layout paper, greeting cards and envelopes. Take your cursive calligraphy to the next level by creating connections between letters and combining words to make short phrases.

Practice will include warm-up exercises to help gain control, connecting common lower case letters and then practice of upper case letters combined with lower case, working with words, popular short phrases and greeting card layout. Students will also learn the instructor's favorite tips and tricks for addressing envelopes.

The focus will be on having students use their own creativity to combine upper and lower case together and adding some flourishing if desired or other decorative elements. 

All students will receive a Calligraphy Kit with 1 oblique pen holder (please specify if you are left handed or right handed): 1 pen nib, 1/2 oz. of walnut ink, (refill of Sumi ink in your ink cup from the Intro class) as well as calligraphy guidelines sheet, envelope template guide, and handouts with greeting card phrases and envelope layouts to practice.
