Join us to learn the beautiful art of traditional pointed pen calligraphy with a modern twist.
We’ll begin the class with exploring the tools and supplies, including the special metal nib and ink, and how to use them properly.
Next we’ll warm up with basic practice strokes and then move on to forming upper and lowercase letters from a set of basic forms.
Previous experience is not required and the provided supplies and workbook will be yours to take home to keep practicing and to create custom stationery, art, and more!
Note: If a date is sold out, join the waitlist to be contacted when a spot opens up.
This class is taking place in our Portland studio.
