Location(s): Vancouver
Topic(s): Pen, Ink, Calligraphy
April 27, 2018

Laura Lavender's pointed pen calligraphy workshop will provide you with all you need to get started writing in the most elegant of ways! This workshop covers elegant pointed pen, firmly rooted in traditional Copperplate calligraphy, yet with a modern emphasis on individuality.

In this 3 hour workshop, we will cover all the basics of how to use your pointed pen. Beginning with how to create the thick and thin lines that are characteristic of pointed pen calligraphy, we then will work through the strokes needed to create the letters we love. Finally, we will look over how these strokes are used to create a lovely alphabet.
