Modern Calligraphy

In November there is always a certain melancholy, so it is just the right moment taking time for yourself and write by hand with devotion. Beginners will experience how it feels to write with a pointed nib and ink. It gives you pure joy, you get into the flow and don’t want to stop. Modern calligraphy is a free script, it leaves room for individual expression and is fun. I call it the dancing script it is performed buoyantly and with ease.

Introduction to modern calligraphic writing with ink and pen. Writing words and texts, a design on colored paper with gouache color. Other combinations with colorful accents. These can be used to make pretty gift wrappings, which we’ll try out.
