Intermediate Modern Calligraphy Workshop 

 

The intermediate modern calligraphy workshop is designed for those who have taken Dora's beginner class or a similar beginner's modern calligraphy class using an oblique pointed pen. In this workshop, students will be challenged with a series of exercises as we dive further into technique and style development, working with flexible nibs, using more advanced inks (like gouache and watercolors — including Finetec metallic), an intro to adding flourishes and composition, and troubleshooting tricky materials. We will also cover working on different types of paper. In this intimate class setting, you will be able to ask individual questions about any issues that you may be having with your calligraphy in addition to the group class. One-on-one guidance and evaluation is also included in class. Each student will leave with a curated supply kit (worth approx. $280) to take home and use continue to hone your calligraphy practice.

 

The workshop will include two flexible nibs, a pan of Finetec metallic water color, a bottle of white ink, different types of papers, and a practice packet. No pen holder will be provided in the class, so please remember to bring your own pen holder. I encourage you to bring your favorite supplies to the workshop! Do you have a beloved dip pen, a favorite watercolor palette, or an ink that you’ve been having trouble with? Don’t hesitate to bring it/them!

Dora from The Rushing Water will be hosting the modern calligraphy workshops.

 

I will be teaching all the basics and practice how to do a modern calligraphy with brush pen, dip pen and ink (depending on the course enrolled). We'll go over all the basic strokes, lettering, and words.

 

As a self-learner to calligraphy, I do not have any mentor/teacher, which means I made a lot of mistakes before getting it right. There are so many things I wished I would have done differently that would made my learning a more efficient and enjoyable experience, which is why I would love to teach you how I wish I tackled modern calligraphy!

 

Supply kit will be provided.

 

I look forward to seeing you there!
