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
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.
