Modern Calligraphy Workshop - Intermediate Level

Modern Calligraphy Workshop - Intermediate Level

Take your basic skills in modern calligraphy up a notch in this class!

Designed for the student with basic calligraphy skills, this Intermediate Level session includes working with an oblique holder and paint. You will create an A5 1-page menu or flat-card invitation. The pre-requisite is a reasonable comfort with using the straight holder and a flex nib, and in writing the lowercase alphabet.

This 4h workshop is packed with exciting options for you to finish your Instagram/Pinterest-worthy project. A wonderful creative session that will yield beautiful take-home pieces to add to your calligraphy portfolio.

Each participant receives a carefully curated intermediate learner's kit for pointed pen calligraphy.
