035A) Beginner/Intermediate Calligraphy

This workshop is for those new to calligraphy or for those to want to learn beyond the basics. This workshop in modern pointed-pen calligraphy will teach you about the tools of calligraphy, basics in practice strokes and technique, as well as cover a full alphabet. More advanced students will learn how to add design elements to capture the essence of the verse being lettered.

At the first class, please have the following supplies:

  • A straight holder- speedball or any other will do.
  • Nikko G pointed nib
  • Sumi ink. Moon Palace or walnut ink.
  • Paper- heavier paper to hold ink, so bleeding is not an issue. Rhodia lined, Canson XL Marker layout paper- we can put lines behind a sheet of paper works great!
  • Paper towel or towel, baby wipes

The instructor will go over the lists with you and you will grow into them as needed:
