Becka Bravo - Modern Calligraphy for Beginners
With Ms+Millie's Beginner's Calligraphy, you will learn the basic tools and concepts needed to kick start your exploration into the beautiful art form that is Copperplate, pointed pen calligraphy. Your instructor, Becka Bravo, will guide you step-by-step through the forming of basic shapes and letter forms, including a full lower and uppercase modern Copperplate alphabet.
Each student should purchase:
- E+M Penholder
- Tachikwa G Nib (or any G nib)
- Kuretake Sumi Ink, 60mL (my typical kit includes a Ms+Millie branded dropper bottle with KY Series Yasutomo + a classic, snap-top Dinky Dip ink well; this should be a comparable option).
- Canson Pro Layout, 9x12 (my typical kit includes Borden & Riley Semitransparent Layout, which is available in a larger size. This brand has been recommended as a comparable substitute. You may also use a higher weighted (60# or more) printer paper, though this is not my usual recommendation.)
*Lists for additional items such as a water bowl, paper towels, etc. will be sent directly to registered students prior to class, as well as a link to download the appropriate guidebook.*
