October 20 - Introduction to Pointed Pen

135.00

This introductory calligraphy class will emphasize learning how to use a pointed pen and an oblique pen holder. With a pointed pen, the thick and thin lines are achieved by varying the pressure on the tip of the nib. With the more familiar Italic of a broad-nib pen, these differences in width are achieved through changing the angle of the nib on paper. You’ll spend the morning getting comfortable with the pointed pen by practicing some simple flourishing designs. The afternoon will be devoted to working with Weaver Writing Style, a beautifully flowing and simple calligraphic script of all lowercase letters.
