Have you ever wanted to learn calligraphy? This is a comprehensive but easy-going introductory workshop for pointed pen calligraphy. Students will learn the essential concepts of calligraphy using an oblique dip pen and a flexible nib and create a solid base that they can build on. They will acquire an understanding of the main tools and proper techniques of traditional copperplate lowercase and uppercase alphabets in this 6 hrs. workshop. Students can continue to improve their skills outside the class with an included calligraphy practice kit.
The workshop includes:
- 6 hours of instruction with Aspacia Kusulas
- 1 Calligraphy Kit:
- Oblique pen holder
- 2 Nibs
- 1 Inkwell with sumi ink
- Paper pad
- Gum arabic
- Guidelines and exemplar sheets
- Booklet with exercises and exemplars
- Light refreshments & snacks.
This workshop is recommended for anyone who is curious about trying calligraphy for the first time or for those who are serious about learning but don't know where to begin. It is especially good for artist and designers looking to incorporate a new skill or style into their practice or for groups of friends looking for a new hobby to share in.
While the workshop is aimed at total beginners (you just know it as beautiful writing) it is also perfect for anyone with previous experience who wants to reaffirm proper technique.
Recommended for students age 16 and older.
