What if I've never done calligraphy before?

Perfect! This course is suited to complete beginners or those wanted to refresh some old skills. We focus on teaching you the absolute basics and turning them into beautiful letters and words.

What is pointed pen calligraphy?

There are many ways of writing calligraphy. We use the more traditional method of pointed pen calligraphy. Pointed pen calligraphy is the method of using a penholder with a nib which is then dipped into an ink jar to gather the ink to start writing. The nibs are flexible to allow a great range of wide and narrow stroke work in your letters.

What if I have bad handwriting?

Calligraphy isn’t just writing, it’s an art. You’ll learn everything you need to create beautiful letters, even if your usual handwriting is a mess!

What if I'm left handed?

Left or right handed, anyone can do calligraphy.
