In this two-hour, one session workshop, students will experiment with old-fashioned style “dip” calligraphy pens using several kinds of inks on a variety of papers. Practice will include the basic strokes that make up letterforms in the Pointed Pen style such as lines, loops and curves, and students will get to practice lower case and upper case letters while following sample alphabet guides. Students will be encouraged to use their own creativity and this old technique to take the handwriting they already possess and create more elegant handwritten correspondence. Students can bring a favorite saying or quote that they can practice with during the class. All materials, ink pen and metal nibs will be provided for use during the class.
