Intro to Modern Calligraphy

Sunday, February 21, 2021

1 - 4 p.m.

Online via Zoom


Learn modern calligraphy in this introductory class! This class is suitable for beginners (no experience necessary), but also for those who have been practicing on their own and would like to learn proper technique. In this class, we will cover the basics of using a dip pen, nibs and ink, basic upstrokes and downstrokes, the lowercase and uppercase alphabet, and the basics of combining letters into words. A simple modern alphabet will be used.


You will learn HOW to write letters, not simply copy them, so that you can practice at home with confidence. You will receive a starter kit which includes a dip pen, two different nibs, a small pot of ink and a workbook. 3 hour workshop.


Supplies Pickup - 2 local options:

  • Calligraphy is an art form that takes patience and consistency, and I have found that under age 12, students do not yet have enough hand control and fine motor skills.

    Students enrolling under aged 15 must be accompanied by paying adult unless prior arrangements have been made with me. (This is a fun hobby and artform to learn together!)
