If you've taken a calligraphy workshop in person or online and you're looking for the next step this is the class for you! In this class we'll go over techniques for connecting letters to form well balanced words, sentences and entire phrases. We'll dive into layouts and tips for various calligraphic projects from envelopes to invitations, including numerals and special characters. I've been teaching beginners and more advanced students for more than 4 years and love sharing all the tricks and tips I've picked up in my 8 years as a professional calligrapher. I use a projector so you get an up close look at forming every letter form without having to crowd around a table. Plus you'll receive one on one help through out the class!
You'll learn about ligatures and how to use them effectively. We'll play with variations of traditional letter forms and I'll show you ways to remain consistent within new modern styles. If you're thinking about making calligraphy more than a hobby this class will help you fine tune your skills. If you feel a little rusty about your calligraphy or you just want some more one on one time with someone who will walk you through the steps, this is just the class you've been looking for.
I designed this class based on questions and requests from my past students so no matter where you find yourself in your calligraphic journey you'll walk away from this class inspired and with a bunch of new helpful information!
