Calligraphy 101: Italic

Join us for an introduction to the elegant Italic hand — one of the foundational hands of calligraphy with the broad-edge nib! If you are new to calligraphy, this is the perfect intro to the basics. We will be using a wide broad edge nib and black ink, on gridded paper. You can bring your own supplies or the Guild will have the necessary supplies for your use.
