I am offering a 6-week calligraphy class from 5:30-7:00 pm on Sundays, beginning January 7. We will study pointed pen lettering, with an emphasis on monoline and copperplate styles.
Please use the form below to register for the class.
The cost will be $95 per person, payable the first day of class or via PayPal here
The class will be limited to 10 participants.
We will study the letter forms and how to use them in projects such as greeting cards, bookmarks, place cards, little books, and more.
Pointed pen lettering requires a bare minimum of tools and materials. You’ll need the following for the class:
- Strathmore Drawing 300 pad at least 9″ x 12″
- Oblique pen holder
- Leonardt Principal EF pointed nib (I can supply 1 nib for $2.50, same price at John Neal)
- a black fine point marker such as Sakura Pigma Micron 01 or ZIG Millennium 01, approximately 1/4mm width
- pencil, sharpener, eraser
- metal-edge ruler at least 12″
Except for the Leonardt Principal nib, everything here is available at the MSU Bookstore. I’ll offer a basic kit, which includes the first 3 items, for $12 to those students who let me know that they want a kit by January 1.
In addition, I will provide some tools and materials for your use, and others for you to try out. I always say that many a budding calligrapher got their start due to a case of OSD (Office Supply Addiction).
Class will be held in the social hall of Temple Beth Shalom at 2020 West Koch; this is just west of 19th Avenue South, near Albertsons.
Class will commence on Sunday, January 7, and meet weekly except for January 21. The last class will be held on February 18.
Email me with any questions. I look forward to seeing you in class!
