In this 3-hour workshop (2 1.5-hour sessions), you will learn the basic italic (cursive) letterforms and you’ll be introduced to elegant edged-pen calligraphy. You will learn about calligraphy tools, tips and techniques and you’ll receive a list of resources for further study. You can also use these tools as a basis for improving your everyday handwriting.
