I have decided to offer my comprehensive Beginner Pointed Pen workshop and also a variety of shorter workshops, conducted over Zoom. Classes will be very limited in size to make sure we have plenty of time for guided feedback and Q&A.
February 26 at 10 AM – 1:30 PM PST
In this course you will learn the basics of pointed pen calligraphy. How to use the tools, how to troubleshoot, and a basic lowercase script. It will run approximately 3.5 hours including a little bit of a break.
Finding Your Own Style
We will go through a series of exercises to work on tweaking, expanding, and changing a calligraphy style that you are used to using, with the goal of finding a completely new style that is unique and can become a signature for you.
Learn my tricks and tips to letter the most creative, beautiful envelopes. I will be sharing some of my best secrets and most popular layouts, and there will be lots of time for questions and personal feedback.
Since we never have much time to devote to capital letters in Beginner workshops, this workshop will focus specifically on them. We will go through different options for script caps, including some of the main flourishes you can use for caps, and even discuss how to develop your own.
Learn the basics of brush lettering in this workshop. We will use a variety of brushes and learn to letter in both a proper script and also a more stylized one.
- After the instruction in all workshops, we will have some time for an “Ask Me Anything.”
- About 10 days before the class, you will receive a Zoom link, a handout, and suggested supplies list with a link to order.
- You can sign up for individual workshops or for a bundle with Beginner and one other. If you’re interested in a different combination, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
