Modern calligraphy has become increasingly popular as it combines new and traditional tools to create a more free-form style of writing, maintaining the elegance of traditional calligraphy while allowing for more self-expression. In this course, students will receive detailed, hands-on instruction each week and learn the fundamentals of pointed-pen calligraphy – from nib preparation to basic strokes to letter and word formation. We will also discuss addressing envelopes, writing on non-traditional surfaces, and creating larger works. No experience necessary. Some materials required.
