Occasionally, circumstances call for you to pick up a pen and write beautiful letters to fully capture the elegance and expression of the hand-written word. And for those times, you’ll be prepared knowing how to sport a nib or two.

No matter what your penmanship looks like, you’ll learn everything from basic strokes to full alphabets, connecting letters, and create letterforms in classical or modern freestyle calligraphy to enhance your skill set and expand your fundamental knowledge of script letterforms.

In the beginner level session of this special workshop series, you’ll learn techniques of pointed pen calligraphy, practice calligraphic techniques, and grip, posture and more. See the intermediate session.

Materials and refreshments for this workshop will be provided. Please let us know if you are right or left handed. Feel free to bring any tools and supplies that you may already own to use.
