Intro to Modern Flow Calligraphy Group Class In this enjoyable two-hour, intimate one-session workshop - open to total beginners - students will explore the elegant art of pointed pen calligraphy with old-fashioned style “dip” calligraphy pens - the style used by many wedding calligraphers.
Students will learn how to use black ink and penholder (both right and left-handed writers are encouraged to join the class) as well as recommendations on other inks and papers and how to create the unique thick and thin elegance that is characteristic of the Pointed Pen style (Pointed pens are used to create Copperplate and Spencerian calligraphy as well as most Modern Calligraphy hands). Students will practice lower case and upper case cursive letters and will be encouraged to use their own creativity and this old technique to take the handwriting they already possess and create more elegant handwritten lettering. With Modern Flow Calligraphy, rather than repeated lifting of pen, the technique practiced is closer to cursive we learned in elementary school with less rigid structures. The focus is on allowing the letters to flow to create lovely lines and loops and allowing students to create their own lettering style.
All materials are supplied by the instructor, PLUS each student will receive a complimentary Calligraphy Starter Kit which includes instruction booklet with sample calligraphy alphabets, 1 pen nib, 1 penholder and 1/2 oz. starter supply of ink to take home and keep practicing.
