Online – 3 Sessions – Tuesdays, February 11, 18 and 25, 2025; 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., US Eastern time.

Creating beautiful calligraphy requires much more than beautiful pen work. Learning to use a T-square for lining up your work, fine-tuning your lettering by practicing with a pencil, and understanding different pencil types and lead hardnesses to create the most effective base for your calligraphy are all essential skills when working to perfect your lettering.
