Place: Gotamago Studio-Shop
Cost: $90; please purchase tickets via Eventbrite

Come alone or grab a few friends, and join Claudia from Kokoro no Melody in this 3.5 hours pointed pen calligraphy workshop! Not only will you get to challenge yourself and learn the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, we’ll get a chance have a lot of fun, and do a small project at the end!

This course is designed for complete beginners with no prior experience, or anyone who wants to brush up on their basics. Pointed-pen calligraphy can be intimidating and difficult to tackle in the beginning, that’s why this workshop is divided into specific and bite-size sections to help you easily understand and master each technical aspect.

In this session, we will go through the tools and how to prepare a pointed pen, how to tackle each stroke one by one, and putting those strokes together to form letters and compose words.

The course fee includes your Starter Writing Kit, curated and handpicked by Claudia! It includes:

♥ Kokoro no Melody Modern Calligraphy Workbook

♥ One Calligraphy pen holder

♥ One Zebra G calligraphy nib

♥ A jar of sumi black ink

♥ Customized Name Keepsake

Class size is limited so Claudia can provide all participants with ample amount of attention to guide you through this process, and offer a lot of feedback and tips.

More about the instructor: 

Claudia was first introduced to calligraphy back in 1993, she stopped shortly after, but came face to face with it again in 2017. She fell in love with Copperplate Script immediately, since then writing with pointed pen and nib became an integral part of her life. Learning pointed pen calligraphy can be a little intimidating, but Claudia breaks down all complex concepts into manageable bite size pieces to help her students tackle this skill. In addition, she found the act of writing has been extremely therapeutic for her. She hopes that her workshops will give her students a chance to discover a new skill and enjoy the therapeutic benefits calligraphy has given her.
