This class is designed to give students an opportunity to learn to use their traditional dip pens to make beautiful marks. Learn about nibs, grasp, different inks, papers, and making simple letters in calligraphic style.
Learn the absolute basics of pointed pen calligraphy. No experience required. We will cover choosing materials, holding the pen, working with different nibs, inks, and papers, and logical steps to deconstructing letters that we see and translating them into calligraphic strokes of the pen.
The small class size ensures that each person receives feedback from David as they work on the various techniques presented in class.
This class is designed for beginners.
Light snacks and drinks provided. Please pack a lunch.
His workshop is one of the most inspiring and helpful calligraphy workshops I have joined. His detail-oriented attitude allows him to explain everything about letter forms in a very clear and precise manner.
