Teach Yourself Calligraphy

November 6, 2014

I finally decided to take the plunge into calligraphy, and am having so much fun teaching myself the different styles and techniques.  Last year, I bought a cheapo starter kit from an Etsy seller, but I never ended up using it…until now, and realized quality supplies matter (duh) so don’t just go for cheap!  I am still very new to calligraphy, but I can now discriminate between different pens, nibs, paper, and ink.  I can also manipulate my penmanship into different font styles; it’s very true when they say “practice makes perfect”.

I hope you’re reading this because you are thinking of trying out calligraphy too; if so, you’ve come to the write place!  I’ve assembled a list of resources to help you achieve your calligraphy dreams. These links are what helped me learn (I’m still learning!), and I think they are the best the web has to offer.


UPDATE


Since writing this post, I have written a complete guide to learning calligraphy, and guess what? It’s completely FREE! Click over to instantly download the coursework!

  1. Love this blog post, I have been trying to teach myself, its a slow process but im really enjoying it! The Flourish Forum is another amazing resource for free videos, tutorials and print outs. It’s another place you can get lost in for days!

    • Aurelia,

  2. What a fun idea! I considered trying to learn before our wedding so I could send out pretty invitations – butttt that got pushed aside :-)
