Want to learn how to write beautifully? It's time to get into calligraphy. You can take workshops, self-study, or even learn online. We're here to point you in the right direction.

  • Sign up for a workshop. If you don't know where to begin, joining a workshop is a great start. There are a lot of calligraphers who offer workshops (either private or with a group), so you're in luck! The fee might be a little pricey, but apart from learning how to do calligraphy, you also get to take home kits that usually include a pen, some nibs, and practice sheets.

    Check out these links for those who offer calligraphy (and lettering) workshops.

  • Practice makes progress. Calligraphy doesn't just happen overnight. You need to keep practicing your strokes to get them right. Set aside an hour or two to sit down and just write.
