We created this course to expand on our popular 4 hour - Introduction to Modern calligraphy Workshop.  This course is designed to study letter formations more intensely over a 5 week period.   Over the duration of 5 weeks, we will walk you through the basics including proper pen grip, posture, paper slant and how to use a dip pen and ink to produce thin wispy hairlines and dramatic thick swells…the hallmark to beautiful pointed pen calligraphy!  You will learn the principal strokes used to create letter forms as well as a complete lowercase and uppercase alphabet, plus all the little secrets of the trade!  Each week we will put what you have learned to use with weekly projects such as notebooks, calendars and more!

This is a beginners workshop.  No experience required!

Tool kit provided which includes:
- 1 pen holder
- 2 nibs
- 1 jar of black ink

- 1 instructional alphabet & practice sheets
