Calligraphy, Craft blog

Keep practicing and track your progress! 


I thought I would share a Calligraphy update, my progress over the last 4 weeks.

I have picked up from various Instagram feeds and calligraphy company websites that it’s good to keep a track of your progress.

August practice using a cartridge pen with red ink

On the 17th of August I wrote out an alphabet of capital and lowercase using a basic cartridge pen. I was starting to practice my drills and  getting used to the flow of the letters.

Today’s progress using my pointed pen and drawing ink

A month on I’ve been practicing and doing quite a lot of writing on Christmas cards etc. There’s a long way to go but I can see some progress……will I ever get the hang of M and N???? 🤷🏻‍♀️

If you are learning Calligraphy my advise is to stick with it, keep practicing and keep a track of your progress.

Sometimes it’s quite disheartening when you can’t seem to get the hang of a letter or a flourish, but looking back to where you started is quite motivating, you do improve.

Thank you for reading and happy crafting!
