Calligraphy Demo

Explore your curiosity at a calligraphy demo! At each demo, I present a topic that’s helpful for people who are completely new to calligraphy. In 2022, I gave talks at Arizona Art Supply here in Tucson. Attendees were able to purchase the recommended supplies on the spot!

Each demonstration is in person and lasts for roughly 2 hours. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and try out the techniques using pens and paper I provide.

What Happens During a Calligraphy Demo

My demos are a combination of a short talk, hands-on practice, and the opportunity to watch a professional calligrapher write using the techniques we’ve discussed. No calligraphy experience is required for you to attend.
