$ 160  

Learn the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, the style of calligraphy used by many modern calligraphers especially in the wedding industry. From how to use these beautiful dip pens, recommended inks and papers, to tips and tricks for addressing envelopes, working on greeting cards, and even a quote or poem layout. With Fun and Fancy Calligraphy, students are encouraged to create their own style of calligraphy and are not forced to do repetitive copying, but rather inspired by lots of hands on demos and individual one-on-one training to improve hand position and handwriting strength. No experience necessary

Starter calligraphy kit with nib, penholder, inks
greeting cards, envelopes and place cards
alphabet guides
