Taking a calligraphy class has been on my to-do list for a long time, and I finally got the chance to try it out last week when I took a beginners class here in Austin with Lauren of Blue Eye Brown Eye. I loved it!
Lauren explained the various tools a calligrapher needs as well as lettering in general. Then we got down to business and started practicing all of the lowercase letters of the alphabet. It definitely takes a lot of practice getting used to the pen as well as how and when to apply pressure.
I'm setting aside time to practice my new skills and can't wait to incorporate calligraphy into my card designs.
