Modern Calligraphy 101: Supplies + The Basic Calligraphy Alphabet



Are you interested in learning calligraphy?

I'm Brittany Russell of Letter Lane Design Studio, and I invite you to join me for a series of classes all about getting started with learning modern calligraphy!

This class will cover the foundations of calligraphy. By the end of this class, you will know what supplies you need for calligraphy, some basic warm-up strokes, the basic calligraphy alphabet and how to write your name in calligraphy.

Included with this class are several downloads, which are two different guide sheets, the full calligraphy alphabet reference guide and a list of my favorite calligraphy supplies and the best places to buy them.

This is class #1 in a series of calligraphy classes I will be offering - stay tuned for upcoming courses on addressing envelopes in calligraphy, learning different script styles, how to mix custom ink colors, brush calligraphy 101, and more!

I can't wait to help you get started on your calligraphy journey!


Your assignment for this class will be to select a short quote/phrase or your name and write it in calligraphy.

Remember, calligraphy is a fun and relaxing art form, so try not to get discouraged as you write and remember that, like most things, you will get better the more you do it. I encourage you to practice each individual letter of the alphabet before trying to create words, as it will give you a better understanding of how each letter is formed.

Once you feel comfortable connecting letters, choose a word, a shore quote or phrase, or even your name and write it in calligraphy! Then, upload your project for the rest of us to see!

I can't wait to see what you create :)
