John Neal Books is not hosting this class.


The traditional tool of the calligrapher for more than 2000 years, the broad-edged pen enables us to create many beautiful styles of calligraphy, including Roman, Uncial, Italic, Carolingian and various forms of Gothic.    In this class we will be learn the basic rules of the pen itself as well as some of the fundamentals of two classical lettering styles.  Although mastery of the pen cannot be achieved in a few hours, this class will open the door to a wide range of exciting and beautiful calligraphy.  This workshop is for students familiar with the pointed pen who have had little or no experience with the broad-edge, as well as complete beginners to calligraphy.
