I’ve always enjoyed writing since I was young, because (excuse me while I toot my own horn…) I’m good at it. When I was in school I was introduced to calligraphy in an art class and I really enjoyed it. My mom bought me a calligraphy set and I would practice. Unfortunately other hobbies came into play and I didn’t hang on to the art. Last month I was invited by my lovely photog friend Megan Welker to take a beginners calligraphy class and I jumped at the chance! We took Poppyjack’s class, which I would highly recommend. She was great, very thourough and patient. Megan and I had a great time at our first class and I do have to say it won’t be our last!
In life it’s beautiful to look at, and in our event industry it’s a valuable trade.
I was surprised at how challenging it was. I forgot this style of writing is ancient and requires a lot of patience and practice. Don’t just expect to go in and have the hang of it!
