Mastering the basic strokes (which is fundamental in improving in calligraphy)

Writing the lower-case alphabet

Techniques in improving your letterforms

How to connect letters to form words that look natural and “breathing”

Overcoming roadblocks you will encounter when starting out


This is a perfect workshop for those with little, or no, experience in using a pointed pen.
