Pointed Pen Calligraphy for the Curious Beginner with Lindsey Wayland, November 3

Pointed Pen Calligraphy for the Curious Beginner with Lindsey Wayland, November 3

75.00

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1-4 PM

Using the ancient dip pen and black sumi ink, come discover the joy and beauty of calligraphy and the calming meditation of calligraphy. Join poet calligrapher Lindsey Wayland to connect deeply with the letterforms you already use and read daily. The quality of calligraphy will bring each student closer to their center and presence.

The word calligraphy comes from two Greek words: kallos, which means “beauty,” and graphein, which means “to write” thus, “beautiful writing.” However, because calligraphy is less about beautiful handwriting and more about drawing the letterforms beautifully, anyone with enough patience can learn calligraphy.

Each student will learn the basic alphabet in classic Copperplate cursive as the foundation to experiment and add their own creative flair. Students will leave class with a more confident ability to write beautifully, to understand the letters used in nearly every application of life, and very beautiful materials. Students must have a basic understanding of writing and cursive. No other prerequisites necessary. All are welcome.

Please let us know in advance if you are left-handed. Once you've taken this class, you are qualified for Pointed Pen Calligraphy for Intermediates (check website for current schedule).

Supplies Fee: $30, cash or check made payable to the instructor on the first day of class.

ABOUT LINDSEY

Praise for Lindsey’s teaching:
“I was immediately drawn to Lindsey’s art and words by her vibrant presence. Right way I sensed she could teach me to make my writing beautiful on the page, and that her style of calligraphy was the artistic and spiritual practice I had been searching for. Lindsey provided the tools and the patterns, a specific style of calligraphy that I was drawn to and felt I could master. There was no pressure or sense of ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’ Lindsey encourages creativity. All her suggestions are positive and aimed at making the student feel confident and proud of whatever they accomplish. I felt a measure of success almost immediately and sensed how much more calligraphy could enrich my life. I am grateful for the peaceful time spent with a dedicated mentor. Practicing my calligraphy has created the most calming, meditative moments I have experienced in years. I am so thankful for Lindsey’s careful, educated guidance. Calligraphy is now something I look forward to and have incorporated into my daily life."

"It has been absolute pleasure to be a part of three classes with Lindsey Wayland. When I stepped into the Beginner's Calligraphy class my fear immediately faded. It had been many years since I had placed myself in a creative, artistic class, much less, a handwriting class!!  Each class member was greeted by a smiling young woman with the warmest of greetings and we were told to look for our name at the tables.  There was my name in the most beautiful calligraphy form I had ever dreamt of. With the tools and clipboard full of practice sheets we learned the basics of calligraphy including how to stop and care for ourselves by massaging our hands.  At the end of the day I had already decided to go on to the Intermediate class."
