Calligraphy classes with Stefanie

Christmas Calligraphy in Potsdam — Classes {8} & {9}


Program :: Our goal in that workshop is the creation of festive place cards and holiday cards with pointed pen calligraphy and flourishing.

What are you going to learn? :: A short introduction to the technique of pointed pen writing (Modern Calligraphy) — Layout hints for the design of festive stationery — Writing with white and metallic inks — Decorating with Washi tape, »Glanzbildern« and basic flourishing elements.

Required skills :: None! This is an absolute beginner's workshop. However, if you have already experience with pointed pen, you'll find some ideas to refresh and deepen your skills. Class size will be small, so there will be enough one-to-one time for your questions! In case you never held a pen holder before, you'll also be able to create some beautiful, personal holiday stationery to take home!

What do you have to bring? :: Please bring a ruler, paper glue, scissors, an eraser and a pencil. I'll provide all other material like nibs and inks, pen holders, paper and Washi tape for you to use. — Of course you can bring your own pen holder, or your own blanco post cards, envelopes or other stationery to write on. — There will be a selection of supplies I'll offer to purchase during class.

Online class planned!


Thanks so much to everyone who participated in my survey about my online class! I cannot yet promise when, but it will definitely start sometime next year. According to your answers I'm planning a Copperplate class and maybe later Flourishing!


One of the last workshop was Christmas Calligraphy in the »Kiez« in Dezember 2016



What was it about :: We created charming gift tags and place cards with Modern Calligraphy, Washi paper and simple decorative elements (flourishing).


Workshop or private lesson?

I love sharing my passion and enthusiasm for calligraphy. You'll find lots of helpful hints for writing and designing on my Instagram feed, my blog and from time to time on Periscope {Stefanie @Federflug}. If you would like to learn pointed pen calligraphy in a more structured and focused way, I'd like to meet you at one of my workshops or in a private lesson!

I like to use oblique pen holders to write Copperplate and Spencerian.

Not every ink or color is suited for writing with a dip nib – I'll demonstrate in detail how to use which kind of color. You'll also be able to try out everything!


I am looking forward to seeing you!
