Beth Style calligraphy is a neat, dignified style. Its eye-pleasing clean lines and basic letterforms make it a joy to look at, and an equal joy to make. Beth Style doesn’t have a severe right-leaning slant, so it’s perfect for beginners! To begin, you’ll need a standard calligraphy dip pen, a Nikko G nib, sumi or India ink, and a printer and paper. I highly recommend printing TPK calligraphy worksheets out on 32# laserjet paper. It will be easiest to fill out this worksheet if you have taken the Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy Online Course, though many learners have worked through the worksheet without it.
