Using the ancient dip pen and black sumi ink, come discover the joy and beauty of calligraphy and the calming meditation of calligraphy. Join poet calligrapher Lindsey Wayland to connect deeply with the letterforms you already use and read daily. The quality of calligraphy will bring each student closer to their center and presence.
The word calligraphy comes from two Greek words: kallos, which means “beauty,” and graphein, which means “to write” thus, “beautiful writing.” However, because calligraphy is less about beautiful handwriting and more about drawing the letterforms beautifully, anyone with enough patience can learn calligraphy.
Each student will learn the basic alphabet in classic Copperplate cursive as the foundation to experiment and add their own creative flair. Students will leave class with a more confident ability to write beautifully, to understand the letters used in nearly every application of life, and very beautiful materials. Students must have a basic understanding of writing and cursive. No other prerequisites necessary. All are welcome.
Please let us know in advance if you are left-handed. Once you’ve taken this class, you are qualified for Pointed Pen Calligraphy for Intermediates (check website for current schedule).
Supplies Fee: $30, cash or check made payable to the instructor on the first day of class.
November 3 (Sunday) 1:00 pm - December 3 (Tuesday) 4:00 pm
