In this lesson, the Scribblers Collective (@ScribblersCollective) will conduct its "Introduction to Calligraphy" class with brush pens.

This workshop is structured as an opportunity to dip your toes into the waters of western calligraphy. The basic letter forms will be covered, which are the building blocks of copperplate and modern calligraphy. You will also be taught how to use the brush pens effectively to create variance in line thickness, which is sought after in contemporary calligraphy. By the end of the lesson, you should be able to write a simple quote with the pens provided.

MATERIALS (Take-home)

  • Class notes by SC

  • Practice Sheets by SC

  • All other materials (brush pens) provided are for in-class use only.
