FALL 2020 – Calligraphy 101

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Calligraphy 101

Dive into the practice of pointed pen calligraphy in this virtual lettering series! In this virtual three-session course, you’ll learn the correct hand and body position with new tools to achieve smooth lines, understand how to use pressure to measure ink flow, and practice lettering techniques with both upper and lower-case modern alphabets. Build up a foundation of basic strokes and connected letters as you discover how to fold these new techniques into a variety of hand-lettered projects. Instructor demonstrations and project inspiration will accompany student practice in this interactive calligraphy workshop. A materials list will be provided upon registration; supplies must be purchased independently.
