In this class we will take a look at traditional calligraphy scripts and how to expand into more modern styles. You will walk away with knowledge on using the unique tools involved in dip pen calligraphy, traditional and modern lettering styles, paper and ink choices and more! I’ve been teaching beginners for more than 4 years and love sharing all the tricks and tips I’ve picked up in my 8 years as a professional calligrapher. I use a projector so you get an up close look at forming every letter form without having to crowd around a table. Plus you’ll receive one on one help through out the class!
This class will be a one day workshop from 9am-1pm. No experience is required. This is a beginners class. 🙂
We will explore how to use different nibs, pen holders, guidelines, ink and paper. The first part of class will be focused on traditional copperplate letter forms. It’s important to understand the foundations when learning a new skill. This part will give you an understanding of the main concepts of calligraphy.
In the second part we will look at how to expand your skills. We will dive into a more modern calligraphy styles, learn more about paper selection and go over any other questions!
My goal is to help you begin a journey in calligraphy. I’ll take time with each student to provide you with techniques and tips to further your skills.
You will need to purchase or bring with you: 1 Oblique pen holder, 1 Zebra G nib, 1 Marker Layout Paper pad and 1 Sumi Ink.
