This one-session modern calligraphy workshop will give you a taste of three different styles! Calligrapher Danielle Rothman will teach you the fundamentals of modern calligraphy, a free-form style that is all about personalizing your writing! In the first part of class, you will be guided through practicing the basic strokes that make up all letters, a calligraphy alphabet, and both faux and brush calligraphy.
In the second part of class, we will introduce dip pen calligraphy and continue honing our skills.
Each student will receive a kit with a couple of markers, a dip pen with a nib + some ink, and practice paper for you to continue your practice at home.
This class is for absolute beginners, and left-handers are welcome!
