This year I have decided to re-learn a traditional skill I enjoyed as a child. At the Handmade Fair last year, I tried a taster session for modern calligraphy and loved it. Here’s my attempt below, I need to practice!
I know that a number of you would also like to learn calligraphy, so I thought I would round up some inspiration and resources for us all to enjoy!
Free online calligraphy sessions – Coordinately Yours Blog
Gold Letterpress Print – Lindsay Letters
Faux Calligraphy Stationery – Erica’s Sweet Tooth
Hello Calligraphy Card – Leen Jean Studio
Calligraphy Envelopes – Oh So Beautiful Paper
To practice the lettering, I will be using this book I made at a Japanese stab binding class last year and these bamboo calligraphy pens I bought from Not On The High Street.
I’ll be sure to Instagram my progress along the way! Here’s my Pinterest board of calligraphy inspiration, but I would love to see anything you have found too.
