Intro to Modern Pointed Pen Calligraphy

In this three hour workshop, Samantha Testa will give you access to beginner pointed pen supplies, show you how to use all of them, and guide you through basic drills and practice sheets. Samantha is a full time calligrapher and watercolor artist and has traveled the country teaching 1500+ people how to start hand lettering and/or pointed pen calligraphy.

One on one guidance will help you with drills, the pen strokes, letterforms, flourishing, and stylizing your writing. You will use these skills to create your own postcard set (because snail mail is making a comeback).

You will walk home with a personalized workbook containing several alphabet styles, nibs, an oblique nib holder, ink, notepad, and a handmade greeting card set, which will set you up for calligraphy success!

No experience necessary and all skill levels welcome. Keep in mind we will be getting basic supplies and guidance for the very beginner calligrapher! Actual quote from participant: "I think this is more relaxing than your Hand Lettering Class!"

Can't wait to see you, Denver!
