During this hands-on 2.5 hour class, you will learn the basics of modern pointed pen calligraphy based on the principles of traditional Copperplate techniques. We will guide you through the following modules:

— The Tools + Pen Assembly 
— Proper Positioning + Posture 
— Foundational Shape Exercises 
— Introductory Script Alphabet Basics
— Letter Connection + Word Creation

No experience necessary, and all supplies are included in a special take-home version of the Essential Modern Calligraphy Kit. This class is designed for the true beginner, however those with some pointed pen experience have reported picking up some useful tips at our workshops as well!

We follow a simple step-by-step lesson plan, with lots of time to practise, to ensure you leave with the right skills and tools to continue - and excel - in your future modern calligraphy practice.
