Introduction to Pointed Pen Calligraphy – Online Tutorial

This 45-minute online video covers the basics of pointed pen calligraphy with guided instruction from Laura of Laura Hooper Calligraphy. The tutorial begins with the anatomy of the oblique pen and preparation to begin (ink dipping, gridlines, practice strokes), which is followed by close-up visuals of Laura writing every letter of the Copperplate alphabet – both upper and lower case – with verbal instruction on the thick and thin lines of each letter. In addition, tips and common errors to avoid are provided for a variety of letters.

{Client testimonial…“The new online tutorial from Laura is so wonderful! I have been doing calligraphy for several years now and this video is a fantastic accompaniment to the Starter Kit. I have been using the different fonts in the Starter Kit for awhile and it was so helpful to watch Laura form the letters online. I learned several tricks by watching her do the letters and the Pause for Practice interludes were so good. It is going to be a HUGE asset to have the video to use for warm-ups and to fine-tune my form. I also really enjoyed the information at the end of the video about numbers and mixing inks. I am so happy I purchased the video and have it to use as a great learning resource.”
