Last night I went to the second week of my Introduction to Pointed Pen Calligraphy class. We learned how to attach the nib to the oblique (this is what the holder is called). Once we had our pens set up, we learned how to load them with ink and moved on to learning to use the pen. We reviewed the different strokes that make up the letters and then went on to combining them to make the letters. We also played around with the thick and thin lines to create patterns. Our assignment for next week is to practice with the pen by doodling patterns.
