Introduction to Pointed Pen

  • Odd Bird Theatre Dhan Mill Compound, 100 Feet Road, Chhattarpur New Delhi India (map)

Spend a Sunday afternoon in a beautiful sun-lit setting, being creative and learning a new skill. This time we will learn how to use a pointed pen (pictured in the poster), how the nib works, basic rules and tips for pointed pen calligraphy, different styles of calligraphy possible with this pen, including many modern calligraphy styles and some traditional scripts (copperplate, spencerian, uncial, roman). 
You will have lots of time to try everything out, practice and ask me all your questions. It's a great way to get to learn the basics, sample a lot of different styles and find your favourites. I will also explain about other materials to try for calligraphy, where to get supplies in India, how to keep learning and further applications.
