Beginning Calligraphy: Dancing Pen

Using an oblique pen holder, a Japanese-made pointed pen, Nikko G nib and other tools, you can significantly dress-up your cursive and print handwriting. Learn to achieve thick, shaded strokes and fine hairlines by controlling pressure on your pen. Go home with techniques that will turn ordinary handwritten notes and cards into beautiful works of art. Bring a favorite quote or project ideas for practice and discussion. Apply your fancy handwriting skills in Silkscreened Holiday Cards.
