Product Description

Fine-tune Your Calligraphy
Saturday, June 3rd, 10:30 - 1:30 PM
Instructor: Megan Goodenough

With calligraphy, learning the classic letter forms is just the beginning. The visual rhythm of the text is as important, if not more so, than perfect letters. Connectors, spacing, ligatures, hand variations, and personal style are the keys to developing a beautiful hand. Calligrapher Megan Goodenough has structured this class so that you can practice the letters you know while working on the flow of your text. She’ll first discuss the visual subtleties common to all styles of calligraphy and will work individually with each student to identify specific areas for attention. Then it’s practice, practice, practice! Students should bring in their favorite pen and some ink as well as samples of their written work for analysis. A chisel-edged or pointed pen is fine.

Previous calligraphy experience is required to register for this class.

Please bring the following materials:

  • Examples of your own written text – practice sheets or a specific project you’ve worked on.
  • Favorite pen, nib, and ink. Chisel-edged or pointed nibs are both fine.
  • If you have already taken a calligraphy class with Megan, please bring your calligraphy kit that was provided for the class.
  • Optional: paper to practice on
Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.

Instructor Bio
Megan Goodenough has loved alphabets her whole life, whether in calligraphy, books, illuminations, illustrations, or paintings. Her earliest art memory is of practicing handwriting while listening to her mom's Buddhist chanting group. Megan's love of combining art and spirit was born and, at the age of seven, she declared, "I want to be a scribe!" No wonder she was particularly drawn to Illuminated Manuscripts when she later studied art history. Illuminated Manuscripts, which are an art form found in almost every culture, consist of scared words, illustrations emoting those words, and an application of gold to literally illuminate, or to bring light to, the page and reader. Megan studied fine arts at university but it took her a while to find the training she longed for. She finally discovered it in workshops and lessons provided through old school guilds devoted to calligraphic and illuminated art. Nothing else satisfied her desire to integrate art, science, and spirit. Megan continues to take courses, study, practice, sew books, draw, and paint. "I especially love focusing on the detail work - the curve of a letter, a single stitch, a vein in a leaf. . . It basically comes down to a deep love of the arts, the written word, and books! We all have to champion something, so I guess for me it's the letter A." Learn more about Megan's work and her philosophy at www.theilluminationcollective.com.
