Introduction to Western Calligraphy (3.5 hrs)
This workshop is for complete beginners and will provide everything one needs to get started with Western pointed pen calligraphy in the traditional Copperplate script. Starting your calligraphy journey with a traditional script allows one to establish strong fundamentals. The skill is versatile: one could simply use knowledge to do brush calligraphy, or even adopt a bouncier, freeform script — also known as modern calligraphy.
Flourish and Embellish (4 hrs)
While doing calligraphy, have you thought about how your writing looks just like someone else’s, or if there is any way you can find your own character and style in your writing? Personally, I find that flourishes and embellishes have the ability to make one’s calligraphy become something personal. They are attractive and give character to an otherwise ordinary piece of writing. This course will break down something seemingly complicated into palatable parts and equip you with the knowledge to add flourishes to your writing effectively.
As this is an intermediate course, participants are assumed to have some knowledge and experience with pointed pen calligraphy. If you have taken my beginner’s course, this course will be a great follow-up.
