Getting familiar with calligraphy terms

Proper use of calligraphy tools and equipment

Correct posture in practicing

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

Writing the lower-case alphabet and an introduction to uppercase 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.

Two  pointed nibs best recommended for beginners
