Calligraphy Drills and Chill
I recently had a baby, so I’ve been doing virtual workout classes to regain my strength. There’s something comforting and motivating about the instructor doing the exercises with you! As I did a workout the other day, it occurred to me that it might be cool to do calligraphy drills together … like a virtual exercise class. In “Calligraphy Drills and Chill“, I demo each drill for you, then I do the rest of the drill with you as I chat. The idea is to provide you with guidance, entertainment, and relaxation as we both set aside 40 minutes out of the day to strengthen our pointed pen skills! So, when you have time this evening or this weekend, gather your supplies, and enjoy the video below:
- 11 Calming Calligraphy Drills Worksheet – Print on HP 32# Premium laserjet paper or another calligraphy-friendly paper.
- Ink – I used iron gall.
- Nib – I used a Brause EF66.
- Pen – I used a Brause EF66 oblique.
- Art water
- Cleaning cloth
- Piece of scrap paper to put under the worksheet for padding
A Summer Calligraphy Treat
Starting today through this weekend, all orders $25+ containing at least one product from the Supplies Shop will receive a free nib tin! Add at least $25 worth of Supplies Shop (and, if you’d like, Catalog) items to your cart, and the nib tin will automatically appear there at checkout.
If you enjoy today’s “Calligraphy and Chill” video, please let me know. I’d be happy to make more videos with other free worksheets available here on the TPK website! I’d appreciate discussion topic suggestions — let me know what you want to hear about.
Thanks so much for reading/watching, and enjoy a relaxing weekend!
