Excited to learn calligraphy, but not sure where to begin?

Maybe you’ve started, but you want your practice to be more effective.

Wherever you are in your journey, this page is right for you. If you’re like me, you learn different things in different ways. Scroll down to find articles, videos, and our social outlets for everything we share about learning calligraphy.

A word of advice, even if you don’t decide to learn from me: be patient. Part of this process is unlearning things that you know about writing, and replacing them with what you learn about calligraphy. This takes time and dedicated practice. But each time you show up to the page, you’ll understand the lessons a bit more clearly.
