In this class from our partners at Brit & Co., learn fundamental techniques and tips from calligraphy pro Lauren Essl.
Meet Lauren and go over the supplies you'll need, then learn how to set up your workspace so that supplies are easily accessible when you start working.
Learn how to assemble, hold and dip your calligraphy pen, then see how to use grid paper and practice a few warmup strokes to get started.
Learn how to write the alphabet in lowercase, when to apply and release pressure, and where to start letter shapes.
Use the techniques you learned in the previous lesson to write the alphabet in uppercase.
Create an entire set of numbers, then learn all of Lauren's tips and tricks for connecting letters to create words and phrases.
Apply all the skills you've learned to your final project: Writing out different quotes on stationery to create a greeting card set.
Practice makes perfect. Lauren will go over how often to practice, where to practice, tracing techniques, and more!
