Looking to get into a new hobby? I promise you’ll pass all sorts of time trying to perfect your hand lettering skills. I’ve been playing around with modern calligraphy and hand lettering since last year. No I wasn’t a natural at first scribble, but yes I have always had somewhat decent handwriting so I thought I’d give it a shot. Practice makes better right? Plus this lovely thing called “Intro to Modern Calligraphy” makes a world of difference in your practice!
If you’re in the Orlando area, I have taken a number of classes by @flaxandwooldesigns hosted at a cute little paper boutique in Ivanhoe village called @papergoatpost. Jessalyn (flaxandwool) is one of my favorite handletter-ers to learn from. She is sweet, encouraging, so talented, and her testimony is beautiful! She offers a range of classes from learning handlettering, intro to modern calligraphy, brush lettering, wood & lettering, and so much more. If you’re not located in Florida, don’t fret theres tons of incredibly talented calligraphers out there that you can learn from! Go check them out below and be sure to post your progress!!
