Hello.

I’d like to share more of my Calligraphy hits and tips with you, as a follow on to my last post Starting Calligraphy – My hints and tips (part 1) and so as you may have guessed this is part 2 😊

In my previous post I wrote about learning the basis with a cartridge calligraphy pen.

Once you feel comfortable with this and feel you’d like to progress further the next step would be a pointed/dip pen.

I say this is the next step because it can be quite an investment to move onto a dip pen, but it is definitely worth the leap.

Hello.

I recently posted a blog post: My Instagram craft inspirations and had also posted very similar wording on my Instagram feed.

Following this Instagram post I was contacted by fellow Blogger and Instagram’er, Charlotte, from Instagram @charlotteshares_ and Charlottes blog

Charlotte mentioned that she was interested in teaching herself Calligraphy but wasn’t sure where to start.

This inspired me to write these 2 posts. Thank you Charlotte, for the inspiration to write to these, I hope it helps. 😊
