It's All About How You Hold the Pen--
There's a lot of writing in the workshops. We start with warm-up exercises and practice how to hold a calligraphy pen correctly. The program includes exhibits, lettering samples, books and resources. Doodling is encouraged to build up skill for those beautiful wide and narrow strokes. Tracing also helps to achieve the desired results. We go from simple strokes to letters, words and sentences. You can also try your hand at dip pens, too. Different pens create different lettering styles.
