Scarlet & Gold Calligraphy Class

February 23, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed my obsession with calligraphy...well, technically speaking, fake calligraphy. Yes, you heard that right. I'm a self-confessed handwriting fraud. My technique is far from proper, but it gets the job done (and still looks pretty cool if I do say so my self).

However, most recently I've become interested in learning to do calligraphy the real way.  I'm talking totally old-fashioned, nib and ink calligraphy. I've searched forever trying to find classes that teach this style calligraphy but they were all a little too pricy and I just couldn't bite the bullet.

But then something crazy happened. Scarlet & Gold (aka the cutest online source for notebooks, paper, phone cases, etc.) announced they are offering a free online calligraphy class. Handwriting connoisseurs rejoice!!

All you have to do is purchase a nib, pen holder and ink (which cost me all of $12 after shipping). You can purchase supplies at your local craft store or order them online from Paper & Ink Arts and get 5% off with code scarletgold.

For more information on the class, be sure to sign up for updates here (and purchase your supplies). I can't wait to share my work once I take the class. Let me know if you'll be taking it too-- I'd love to geek out about handwriting with you and exchange tips!
