Very, VERY helpful course! I started to study calligraphy not so long ago, and some tips and tricks are undescribely usful, 'cause it's basic things that so hard to find anywhere in the net; usually I find only pieces of information. Thank you so much!
Loved this class! Tracy explained everything and gave so many tips! Thank you for the class. Hope to see more!
