This home-study -
Correspondence course uses my book
together with downloadable course
materials that are on this website.
The advantages of learning by this method
are: you work at your own pace, and you
are not competing with other students.
Also, you can receive my individualized
attention and help as you progress.
Calligraphy Fountain Pen A
Bottle of Ink
You'll need a copy of my best-selling book,
Calligraphy For Dummies
. It is
314 pages full of helpful information and
one of the most comprehensive books on
calligraphy in print. It will guide you from
the beginning steps up to the level of
becoming an accomplished calligrapher. You
will learn 6 alphabets and many variations.
The book covers everything you need to know
about creating name tags, monograms,
posters, greeting cards, quotations, and
many, many other projects.
For the beginning lessons, you will need a
calligraphy fountain pen and a bottle of
ink. The Manuscript Deluxe pen set and
Pelikan 4001 black ink are my
recommendations. These are excellent
products and fairly inexpensive.
All the practice pages and my introductory
instruction videos can be downloaded free of
charge from this website.
As you progress, you may e-mail me with any
questions you might have. I can also provide
you with in-depth critiques of your work, if
you want. I'll answer questions by e-mail at no charge, but there is a charge for doing a critique
of your work.
