Modern Calligraphy: Intro to Pointed Pen

This beginners workshop will introduce you to modern, pointed-pen calligraphy. When you leave, you'll have all of the tools (physically and mentally!) to get working on beautiful, hand lettered pieces. We'll focus on introductions to materials, the basic skills for strokes and letters. We'll introduce you to making words and drawing using the pen holder.

Here's what you'll get:

  • 2 hours of instruction and unlimited follow-up email
  • 1 pen holder, 2 nibs, and 1 jar of black ink
  • practice pad and exemplar alphabet
  • handouts to help you with your follow-up practice at home
  • a new hobby and a few new friends!

"I am amazed with how quickly I was able to learn calligraphy in Liz's class, and how fun and relaxing writing calligraphy can be! Liz was helpful and knowledgeable about the tools and tips for learning calligraphy. After months and months of trying to teach myself from online templates, I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to learn in her class. Highly, highly recommend!" —Kara Furgeson, Workshop Attendee

Early Bird (purchase on or before June 1) = $125 // Regular price = $150
