The Complete Modern Calligraphy Course

39,00

In this online course you will learn a playful Modern Calligraphy script. It’s quite loose and easygoing, without very rigid rules. For me, Modern Calligraphy is all about having fun and developing your own style, without worrying too much about every letter being the same or every line being perfectly shaped.

If you have a wedding coming up and want to make your own place cards, or if you want to send some pretty special invitations out, then this is the perfect calligraphy style to learn. Save yourself some money by doing your own wedding calligraphy AND learn a new hobby, it’s a win-win really!

But above all, I believe that calligraphy can give you so much joy and relaxation. I truly believe that art is the best therapy there is, and practising calligraphy is a form of meditation. There’s no better way to quiet your mind than to just put nib to paper and create some pretty letters.
