About the event

Have you taken a beginner course in modern calligraphy, but somehow your work still looks a little off? You've been practicing with guides and doing your best to make cards and quotes, but you can't put your finger on why it doesn't look like the references you're copying...

In this intermediate calligraphy course, you'll learn how to assess and analyze your work so you can improve your practice. We'll review the proper way to hold and use a dip pen with a nib and do a quick refresher on posture and proper paper placement. We will not be covering letters or a specific alphabet, but instead, I'll share professional tips on how to make your letterforms consistent, your spacing pleasing, and your lines straight.

This class is for those who are familiar with using a dip pen and nib. It is not recommended that you take this class without a basic understanding of how to use the materials. However, that is ALL you need to know to take this class! Even if you took a beginner course months ago, you'll still be able to follow along with this workshop.

Supplies are not included in this class.

Recommended Supplies:

  • your favorite pen holder (straight or oblique)
  • your favorite nibs (some I like: Nikko G, Hunt 22B, Hunt 101, Leonardt EF)
  • Canson Marker Paper with calligraphy guidelines (55 degree slant recommended)
  • Rhodia grid paper or blank paper (or your favorite practice paper)
  • sumi ink or walnut ink
  • red ballpoint pen
  • ruler
  • pencil and eraser

Please arrive early to order a cocktail and some snacks before class begins!
