Description

In this introductory workshop for pointed pen calligraphy students will learn the essential concepts of calligraphy and build a solid base to write with an oblique dip pen and a flexible nib. They will acquire an understanding of the main tools and proper techniques. Traditional copperplate lowercase and uppercase alphabets will be covered in this 6 hrs. workshop and students will be able to practice on their own with the kit provided to take home.
