Beginning Online Calligraphy Class

Martha Lever is teaching an online, beginning calligraphy class through Creative Workshops.
This is an excellent opportunity for a beginner to learn the basics of the Italic alphabet, or for anyone wishing to refresh their dormant calligraphy skills. Martha is a professional calligrapher and lettering artist, but better than that, she is a great and encouraging teacher. Calligraphy is an art, but it is also a craft. I believe the master/apprentice approach is critical to preserving the integrity of the art and craft of calligraphy. A good, solid understanding of the fundamentals is important. Below is Martha's video detailing what she will teach and the supplies she will use.

Registration is now open. International participants are welcome. To learn more or to register, click here. To visit Martha's blog click here. To visit Martha's website, click here.


  1. Wouldn't it be interesting if you taught a pointed pen class through Creative Workshops.........

  2. i couldn't have said it better, jane!! not only does martha create beautiful letterforms, but she has a beautiful heart as well! and you are such a sweetie for putting out the word about her class! :))

  3. Jane, you are so thoughtful to do this!! What a wonderful surprise when I saw it and I LOVE your rainbow image with your wonderful italic!! THANK YOU, dear friend!

  4. Thanks for sharing Martha's information, Jane. That was so generous of you. Now I know where to direct people who ask me about learning calligraphy.
    Perhaps you'll teach your fabulous pointed pen. That's a class I would take. Hope so.
