Pointed Pen Calligraphy Continued with Emily J. Snyder

We will practice traditional pointed pen alphabets to warm up and then will explore different flourishing techniques. Students will be encouraged to explore their own personal pointed pen calligraphy style. 

Class includes:
-Two hours of instruction with Emily J. Snyder
-One oblique pen holder, two nibs, and one jar of black ink
-One alphabet tracing pad on calligraphy quality paper with all 26 letter (upper and lower case), plus numbers and blank pages
