WHAT WILL WE BE LEARNING DURING THE WORKSHOP?
Great question! You can learn more about what we cover during our workshops here.
WHAT SORT OF CALLIGRAPHY DO YOU TEACH?
We work with pointed pen nibs, versus the broad tip nibs most commonly associated with "traditional" calligraphy. We cover styles associated with "modern" calligraphy that, although loosely based on Copperplate, allow for extensive personal expression and design within calligraphy.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE INTERMEDIATE CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP?
The Intermediate Workshop is for those who have previous experience using a straight pen and pointed nib. We recommend at least 2-3 months of casual practice before attending this workshop as we will be discussing customizing your style, mixing inks, and digitizing techniques. Please contact us if you are unsure!
