Calligraphy has for the past thirty years been a fading skill, and is now enjoying a wonderful renaissance as the world re-learns the joy and the beauty of hand lettering, using tools and techniques that haven't changed for centuries. Twenty years ago I used to write my high school assignments by hand with a quill and a bottle of ink - not because I had to, but because I have always been a calligraphy nerd! I have spent many, many hours in those years studying the traditional art and craft of calligraphy with every teacher who was willing to teach me. And now that calligraphy is popular again, I absolutely LOVE passing on all my hoarded store of knowledge. I don't believe in keeping secrets - I want everyone to love this art as much as I do.
Classes are generally three to four hours long and are tailored to the needs of the students in each class . I keep class sizes very small so that everyone can have the benefit of personal attention. It's impossible for a YouTube video, for example, to correct your pen grip. But that's why I'm here, and I can share with you what my teachers shared with me many years ago.
You will not walk out of any single class an expert, but you will walk out with all the supplies, tools and techniques to become one if you practice!
