Folded Pen Adventures

This exciting adventure begins learning a very distinctive modern script with a Folded Pen. Folded-pen script, though similar to pointed brush writing, is easier to learn and has a unique contemporary feel. The folded pen is likely to become your favorite writing tool, as you develop a passion for expressive lettering. All levels of experience are welcome.

"The workshop is aimed at everyone: designers, professionals, students, graphic designers, tattoo artists, letter lovers, just curious people or anyone interested in calligraphy, both as an artistic medium and as a graphic element to complete or enrich an editorial or advertising work.
