Ink Meditations: Pointed Pen Calligraphy for the Curious Beginner

Using the ancient dip pen and black sumi ink, come discover the joy and beauty of calligraphy and the calming meditation of letterforms. Join poet calligrapher Lindsey Wayland to connect deeply with the letters you already use and read daily in Ink Meditations. The meditative quality of calligraphy will bring each student closer to their center and presence.

The word calligraphy comes from two Greek words: kallos, which means beauty, and graphein, which means to write thus, beautiful writing. However, because calligraphy is less about beautiful handwriting and more about drawing the letterforms beautifully, anyone with enough patience can learn calligraphy.

Each student will learn the basic alphabet in classic Copperplate cursive as the foundation to experiment and add their own creative flair. Students will leave class with a more confident ability to write beautifully, to understand the letters used in nearly every application of life, and beautiful materials. Students must have a basic understanding of writing. No other prerequisites necessary.

Please let us know in advance if you are left-handed.

This workshop is taught by Lindsey Wayland. A kit of supplies valued at $20 is included in the cost of the workshop.
