Part 1 | Get Started with Pointed-Pen Calligraphy

Modern calligraphy derives from letter-forms and structures of formal scripts i.e. Copperplate consisting of thin strokes, thick strokes, and ovals. All supplies will be provided (and for you to keep), we will work largely on the foundations of calligraphy which consists of holding the pen, drills, angles and basic strokes. Then we will go over the lowercase alphabet and construct the letters together.
