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.

The online tutorial is meant as a complementary piece to the Laura Hooper Calligraphy Starter Kit. It specifically references the materials and instructional kit used in our own starter kit. Please note that the ideas are applicable for any tools, but may not correlate exactly.
