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.

March 28th - Intro to Modern Calligraphy - IN PERSON

  • 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!)

    Please direct specfic questions about age or suitability to Carrie at sparrowlettering@gmail.com

  • We are mandated by county regulations, and will follow whatever the county requires for gatherings of this size. Our participant limit is 15. At this time, masks must be worn while up and moving about. Masks may be removed once seated at your table. Tables are spaced apart with plenty of room in between. You can ask to be seated with certain other people! Just let me know in the comment section OR email Carrie at sparrowlettering@gmail.com.
