Whether you have just started or been doing calligraphy for years, this course helps to fine tune your letter connections and spacing. The course is based on Engrosser's Script, a classic style developed in the late 1800s in America. You will learn the method of breaking down the minuscules (lowercases) into individual stroke to develop a consistent writing rhythm.

Your instructor, Kalo is the first pen lady in Hong Kong to be awarded the Certificate of Proficiency in Engrosser's Script by the IAMPETH.

This is an 4 evening (8 hours total) intermediate course to Engrosser's Script, tailored for calligraphers with basic knowledge in dip pen but struggle to improve further.

Topic covers postures, pen grip, use of tools, warm up drills, principle strokes, movements, nib manipulation and shading techniques. You will learn to write the minuscules (lowercases) one stroke at a time and develop the muscle memory. The course focuses on technical exercises to achieve consistency in letter connections and spacing. Students will also receive constructive feedback on their homework to further improve their skills.
