How to Calligraph: Kits & Workshops

Brides: have you wondered how to calligraph? Would you like to tackle do-it-yourself projects with pretty writing, but your penmanship could use a little work? Today’s feature is for you! I was talking to a friend recently about the lost art of letter writing. Email and text messages have stripped away some of the heartfelt, personal snail mail letters that used to fill mailboxes with happiness (and, snail mail is pretty much one of the greatest things ever). One of the things I’ve always wanted to learn is how to do calligraphy, known as “the art of making beautiful handwriting”. For weddings, you can use calligraphy on your invitations, wedding programs, menus, escort cards, place cards, signage… there are so many places for pretty penmanship! Read on to find out how you can learn how to calligraph in your hometown with a workshop or at home with an awesome new starter kit…
