On Saturday, March 25, join The Charleston Museum and instructor Leaha Gathings for Calligraphy for Beginners, a workshop that will provide an introduction to pointed pen calligraphy. This class is perfect for anyone interested in pursuing the art of calligraphy! During these two and half hours, participants will become familiar with the basics of pointed pen calligraphy techniques. Have something of your own that you’d like to work on? Near the end of class, there will be time for students to practice on items from home– bring envelopes, a journal, etc!

No previous experience or artistic ability required. A starter kit will be provided to all class participants at no extra charge. The kit includes an alphabet for practice, an oblique pen holder, 2 nibs, a jar of ink, tracing paper, gridline practice paper, and detailed instructions on how to use all supplies.

If you are left handed, please notify us in advance, as a different pen will need to provided. Please email [email protected].
