The secret is out! I’m so thrilled and delighted to finally be able to announce my brand new beginners calligraphy packs and video guide, launching in December 2018! If you’ve always wanted to learn calligraphy but don’t have the time to attend an in-person workshop, or if you just want to practice at your own pace in the comfort of your home, then this is for you. My digital tutorial will give you all the information you need to get started with modern calligraphy, and you’ll have the tools you need right at your fingertips. This would make a brilliant birthday or Christmas gift for busy mums and entrepreneurs, or anyone who would love to learn a new creative skill!
Why calligraphy? Hand lettering has been part of what I offer at White Olive Design Studio for some time. I specialise in modern calligraphy for weddings, but have also used it for business branding, event stationery – even pub menus! What many people don’t realise is that calligraphy isn’t just neat handwriting, it’s an art form (and an ancient one at that!). It takes lots of time and practice, which is why professional calligraphy can be costly.
My video guide makes calligraphy for beginners fun and accessible. Once you’ve mastered the basic skills and techniques, you’ll be able to add a creative flourish to handwritten projects, correspondence, decorations, and more. You’ll be able to hand letter beautiful gift tags for your loved ones this Christmas! The tutorial is also perfect for DIY brides, who want to learn calligraphy basics for items like place cards or small signs.
The calligraphy for beginners starter packs will have three different options, so you can choose the one that best suits you. The range starts with a basic package, with just the essentials you need to begin your calligraphy journey, and goes up to a deluxe pack. This will include agate slices, specialist inks, a selection of pen holders and papers to help you play and practice. All of the kits include the video guide, which goes through basic strokes and techniques and introduces you to the tools and materials every calligrapher needs. You can learn at your own pace, and revisit the tutorial whenever you like.
I can’t wait to show you more! Stay tuned for more information soon.
Do you remember when getting post was something special? These days, our postboxes are mostly stuffed with bills and junk mail (and on a good day, a beautiful wedding invitation!). Sadly, the practice of sending Christmas cards has fallen out of fashion. Some people...read more
