Calligraphy has broken out of the 1800's and into the modern age! In this class, you will receive all of the tools you need to get started with this reinvented style of classic Copperplate calligraphy.
This is a beginner's course, intended to get you familiar with the tools, and to start practicing the types of strokes that create letters and forms. After learning the basics and completing an alphabet, we'll talk a little bit about creating your personal modern style, and then end by creating a personalized set of notecards or monogrammed stationary to take home! Stop texting and start practicing your handwriting, we're about to take things lo-tech.
5 Nibs (4 different styles)
