Introduction To Calligraphy Class
Join us at Igloo Letterpress where Lindsey from The Hive Studio will be introducing you to the art of calligraphy. You will learn the basics of holding & understanding your pen & nib, dipping ink, practicing upstrokes & downstrokes, scribing the alphabet, & practicing your own alphabet writing style. Your kits will include (2) nibs, 1 nib holder, ink well + black ink, notepad & practice papers & a resources sheet in a nice, wooden tray box made here in the USA.
At the end of the class, everyone will learn how to manipulate your calligraphed designs into files to use in letterpress printing and graphic design, and will pull a letterpress calligraphy print to take home.
Class switches or cancellations must be requested at least 48 hours before the class time. No refunds or reschedules will be issued for no-shows. If the class is canceled by Igloo Letterpress, registrants will be given a chance to reschedule to a different date or request a full refund.
