Fancy beautiful writing?
If you want to learn the art – or, as I think, rather the craft – of classic pointed pen calligraphy yourself, you need, in my view, three things: good instruction, suitable writing materials, and – in addition to a certain amount of perseverance – above all, a desire to learn!
For guidance, I would like to recommend my Book, in which I cover the topic in great breadth and depth on 240 pages with a bit of theoretical underpinning, but above all with many methodical and clear exercises, tips and tricks, and project suggestions. A bit of German helps – at the moment it is not (yet) available in English.
I also offer (currently at very irregular intervals) Workshops where you can get to know pointed pen calligraphy in a very practical way! More about this – also some explanations of different pointed pen styles – here.
On this page I’ve gathered lots of information on all sorts of Resources: You’ll find links to calligraphy associations, national and international, to interesting websites, as well as some specific advice on the appropriate materials mentioned (and where you can purchase them).
