Calligraphy Class

Last week I took my first calligraphy class here in Austin. Lauren, from Blue Eye Brown Eye, is a doll and so talented!
We learned how to hold the pointed pen, as well as practiced the basic strokes, letter forms and connections. She also gave us a ton of information on what and where to buy materials, paper and ink.
Here's a list of her future classes in case you're interested.

This looks like such a fun experience! I've never really loved my handwriting, so I bet that this would help me to write prettier in everyday life too!

This sounds like so much fun!! I have been following many calligraphers and I would love to go to a class soon! As a planner I often have clients asked if I know calligraphy and as much as I have tried, I just can't get it down! I would love someone actually walking me through it!
