I’m super excited about the new Skillshare class The Art of Modern Calligraphy. The incomparable
Molly Jacques just announced on her blog that she will be teaching this online course, which btw is a total steal for only $20 (plus you get lifelong access to the entire course)! She will cover the basic tools and knowledge of modern, pointed pen calligraphy and you’ll learn how to create a unique alphabet of your own. I can’t wait to start the course. The Art of Modern Calligraphy begins September 25.
In order to improve my letters, I try to practice calligraphy every single day on several surfaces with different
nibs and inks. Below is today’s scribble, an interesting quote by Oscar Wilde. My calligraphy is still rough but
I definitely see an improvement from few weeks ago.
I have always admired calligraphy and I have been wanting to try it for a while now but I wasn’t sure what types of calligraphy pens or nibs to purchase. And then yesterday, while walking around the Anthropologie store, I found this delightful calligraphy kit by Linea Carta’s Diva Pyari! I bought it since it has everything I need to get started and now I can’t wait to play with it. Kit includes one lettering chart (with Diva Pyari’s signature calligraphy), practice sheets, one jar of natural oak gall ink, and wooden dip pen with metal nib.
Stay tuned to see my calligraphy experiments.
Learning proper calligraphy is definitely on my agenda and I would like to learn from a professional calligrapher. If you know of one in the Seattle area, please let me know.
You can buy this kit from Anthropologie or directly from Diva Pyari’s Etsy Shop.
