Free modern calligraphy online tutorial – for one month only!

Happy November! How are you? If you’re a calligraphy beginner then I have something rather unique I’d like to share with you today – my introduction to modern calligraphy ON FILM! This is the first time I’ve ever shared this calligraphy tutorial for free. It’s usually included in my online calligraphy course where you buy all 6 tutorials for a set price. But for one month only, I’m sharing this first video and worksheets with you FREE!

I filmed a series of 6 modern calligraphy workshops a couple of years ago. This is the first tutorial in the series, and introduces my modern calligraphy set – which now looks SO different to the original (I’ll do a little ‘unbox’ clip on the blog or my Instagram in a few days’ time).

If you’ve been to a calligraphy class with me in person, you’ll recognise the exercises and the advice I give about super thin, hairline strokes… and about not being too gentle with your nib on the downwards strokes.

The worksheets you’ll need to complete this workshop are here –

1. lines & pen pressure
2. loops and smooth pressure strokes

If you’d like to buy my calligraphy starter set you can – and do use the discount code in the video!
