Let's Begin! Beginner's Calligraphy

Let's Begin! Beginner's Calligraphy


Dates: January 30, 2019

Time: 6:00-8:15pm (2.25 Hours)

If you've never tried lettering with a pointed pen before, but are ready to give it a whirl, this workshop is for you! The class is casual and relaxed, and no more than 6-8 people so that you'll get plenty of personal attention and help. All supplies will be provided for you to use during the workshop, so all you bring is yourself.  We will go over basic tools, including differences among nibs, inks, and paper. You will learn basic shapes and strokes, and the principle of press and release that gives you those wonderful thick and thin strokes that pointed pen calligraphy is known for.  We'll go over some helpful drills, then practice a sample lower case alphabet.

 Come join the fun! Snacks will be provided. (BYOB) The exact address will be emailed to you with your confirmation. The location is the Historic Dilworth neighborhood in Charlotte, NC, about 5-10 minutes from the downtown area.
