Calligraphy Class Announcements

October 27, 2019 - Southfield, MI at the Ines & Marie Events Studio

In this beginning pointed pen calligraphy class I will teach you the fundamentals of pointed pen calligraphy using an oblique pen holder, nib and ink. You will learn how to create the basic lines and strokes that make up the alphabet, begin learning how to make letterforms, and tips on how to modernize your lettering to make your own style.  All participants will walk away with their own mini calligraphy set as well as the skills to continue your calligraphy practice. This class is perfect for anyone who has never picked up a pen holder and nib before, and wants to give it a try! 

The class will be approximately 3 hours in length and will be capped at 12 students so that everyone can receive individual instruction.
