The pointed pen is a dip pen (dipped in ink, as opposed to a cartridge pen) and can be endlessly variable in style, ranging from totally fanciful to classic elegance. In this two-part series (Saturday mornings, Sept 15 & 22, 9:30am-12:30), we’ll be learning a casual style alphabet probably best characterized by descriptions such as free-form and whimsical. I use this style of calligraphy all the time in my correspondence and art journals. It’s very user friendly and so much fun!
