Every so often it’s time to offer this unique calligraphy class again. It’s absolutely amazing to me how such a humbly designed pen can give such amazing results. This pen, which we will construct in class (actually 3 of them), is literally made out of aluminum cans, wooden dowels, and duct tape and yet it is the pen that I reach for again and again. The picture is from a page of my journal, but I also use it for finished pieces of calligraphy and commission work.
Two Monday evenings will give us time to construct the pens and then get started on learning a loose and lively script that plays particularly well to this unconventional pen. I know I always say this, but this really is one of my “favoritest” pens. A $25 deposit holds your spot. There will also be an additional $10 materials fee, payable the first class, where all your supplies will be ready and waiting for you.
