Back by popular demand! This is an introductory beginner class where you will learn the basics of modern pointed pen calligraphy, a form of calligraphy that uses a nib & ink to create elegant fine-pointed letters as you often see on wedding envelopes, etc.

This workshop will focus on traditional alphabets and learning the foundation of strokes. In addition, just in time for the holidays, you will create a fun project for your Thanksgiving table. All supplies will be provided in addition to materials for your practice at home.

Your take-home kit includes guide sheets, pen, nib, ink and ink dish.
