A great way to learn the fine art of fancy calligraphy in the style used by many modern calligraphers today. This class covers the use of the pointed pens with black ink and focuses on individual letters only starting with lower case and finishing with upper case. A great first class to see if you're interesting in continuing to keep up the fine art of calligraphy. All supplies and tools provided - PLUS each student will receive a Calligraphy Starter Kit which includes pen holder, pen nib, starter supply of ink and instructional booklet with alphabet guides!
3 Week Course (6 hours total), covers everything the Intro to Calligraphy covers in the first week, but then expands the second and third weeks to include connecting letters, working with combinations of upper case and lower case, making short words and phrases, how to address envelopes and design greeting cards, place cards and working with full sentences and layout of a short quotation or poem. All tools and materials provided! Beginners encouraged!
Modern Calligraphy Great class for the busy professional who can't take the 3 Week Course! Spend an afternoon learning the art of modern calligraphy with this 4-hour, 1 day workshop. Learn how to create beautiful letterforms using pointed pens which are the style used to create Copperplate and Spencerian calligraphy and are being used today by many calligraphers particularly for wedding calligraphy, but also take it one step further and use your own creativity to create more modern calligraphy. Have fun putting your new skills to use by practicing addressing envelopes and making greeting cards - all while creating your own modern calligraphy style. Great for brides to be who want to address their own envelopes! Left and right handers are all welcome.
