Introduction to Modern Calligraphy
We were so excited when Shannan contacted us about teaching as we are like the rest of the craft world these days — in LOVE with Modern Calligraphy. This class focuses on learning the basics of the pointed pen with an emphasis on modern calligraphy. Students will learn how to set up workspace, use an oblique pen holder with pointed nibs, prepare calligraphy nibs for writing, and learn the basics of the lowercase alphabet.
Class size: Minimum 6; Maximum 25, minimum age to participate is 12.
There will be a $25 kit fee collected the day of class. Your kit includes an oblique pen holder, a package of nibs, calligraphy practice paper, a bottle of black Sumi ink, Paperglaze exemplars, pencil, a wooden ink well, and paper goods for envelope addressing practice. Yours to keep!
This class is perfect for beginners – bring nothing but your enthusiasm!
