Join this professional calligrapher and spend the day creating beautiful lettering, no experience necessary. Whether you are already smitten with lettering arts or just want to improve your handwriting, this full day workshop will help you explore the old art of pointed pens and inks.

Pointed pens are the style used by most modern calligraphers, especially in the wedding industry - and allow the user to create lettering with both thick and think strokes. Students will learn about nibs, penholders, papers and resources. Practice will include upper and lower case alphabets, creating greeting cards and place cards and handy tricks and tips for creating addressing beautiful envelopes. Students will also learn how to create pleasing layouts for quotations or a short poem or song lyric and will be able to try a variety of inks including white and metallic acrylic inks and high flow acrylics.
