I’ve been wanting to learn calligraphy for a lonnng time. I’ve even bought various supplies here and there. And I’ve tried using them with little success, blaming it on being left-handed or such and quietly putting my pen and nibs back in a drawer. When Molly Jacques announced her calligraphy class on Skillshare I knew this was my chance! Already having taken a hand-lettering workshop with Molly, I was confident she could teach me something. Turns out, it just takes lots and lots of practice! I’m still learning as I go, like how to not ink up a letter too much, add pretty fleurishes and draw consistent line strokes and angles, but it’s finally enjoyable!
If you’re on the edge of learning calligraphy I definitely recommend this class! It’s been really fun and has helped me make more goals to practice. I’ll try to keep sharing what I create and maybe just maybe I’ll be skilled enough to letter some of my wedding escort cards next Fall :) Happy lettering!
