What is calligraphy really? Here’s where we scrape off any dull, half-hearted definitions that might be holding your calligraphy back. Calligraphy is more than ‘beautiful handwriting’ or ‘ornate lettering techniques.’ Calligraphy is the art of forming beautiful symbols by hand and arranging them well.It’s a set of skills and techniques for positioning and inscribing words so they show integrity, harmony, some sort of ancestry, rhythm and creative fire. Join Marita for this wonderful 4 week, 1 hour course via virtual ZOOM and take away a lovely written quote, written by you, that may be framed. A ZOOM link will be provided following your online registration.
