If you are just starting out or are looking for a hands-on discussion to improve your calligraphic hand, this workshop is for you! During this beginner workshop we will cover all the essentials in pointed-pen calligraphy. We will review the basics on how to hold the pen with correct hand position, discuss pressure and how it relates to ink flow, cover all the tools you will need to get started in modern calligraphy, and how to take care of your supplies. We will work through the alphabet together, and discuss the fundamentals of connecting letters. We will also cover different ways to make your calligraphy unique to you, how to push past common early mistakes, and tips and techniques that will help you fine tune your calligraphy work. The calligraphy workshops are kept at a smaller size in order to ensure that I am able to work more directly with you.

Each workshop includes:

1 Straight Pen Holder
1 Nib: Zebra Comic G
1 Pot of India black ink
JesSmith Design's Modern Calligraphy Workbook
Dinky Dibs
Gift Tags for the holidays
Vellum Paper and Practice Paper
Sweet treats from "Reece of Cake"!
