How does it work?
We’ll be using Zoom and will send an invitation code once your booking has been accepted. Then on the date, use your computer or tablet to join me by clicking on the link sent to you. Simple 🙂
Once you’re online you can watch and learn in the comfort of your home. When the lesson has finished you can playback the class at leisure (I’ll send a link afterwards) and practise further.
You can use my private tuition services for one-to-one lessons to further advance your skills and knowledge if you wish. Just contact me.
What will I need?
You will need your calligraphy pen, ink, practise paper and lines or guides to help with this. Optionally you will need a thin brush and a Coliro colour plus a crown (springy) nib. If you have them then you’re good to start. Or, if not, you can purchase a Calligraphy Starter Pack from me here.
