About This Class
Have you always wanted to learn calligraphy but haven't known where to begin? See how easy writing pretty letters can be when you begin with what's called "Faux-lligraphy," also known as fake calligraphy. Faux-lligraphy is a wonderful way to achieve a beautiful calligraphy look without needing any special calligraphy supplies, and also provides a great foundation for progressing into pointed pen calligraphy and brush lettering. In this class I'll show you how to write in Faux-lligraphy in 5 quick and easy steps. Let's get started!

Great class---short and sweet and everything I needed to get started with simple, "faux"-lligraphy and it looks awesome.
I'm Beth and I have loved the art of calligraphy since I was ten years old, when Santa Claus gave me a calligraphy set for Christmas. Pens and pretty papers are a few of my favorite things, and I am blessed to do something I truly, deeply love. While addressing a friend's wedding envelopes in 2009, I was inspired to start my own calligraphy business, and Beth Hunt Calligraphy was born. I want to inspire anyone who wants to create pretty letters to try their hand at lettering and calligraphy...it's easier than you think! I love sharing my hobby turned profession with others and am passionate about keeping the art of calligraphy alive.
