Learn the basics of calligraphy with visiting instructor, Betsy Mealer, from Anchorport Calligraphy. This workshop is for beginners. If you've never picked up a calligraphy pen, this class is for you!

We will go over the very basics, including supplies, dipping the pen in ink, pressure and flow, and basic letter forms. This class is intended to keep things as simple as possible as you learn to hold and maneuver the calligraphy pen.
