Mastering calligraphy is such a useful creative skill and the process of working slowly is both mindful and calming.
In the latest issue of Project Calm, Lauren Cooper of Oh Wonder shares her tips to help you get started.
One of the joys of calligraphy is that you don’t need masses of equipment to do it – you just need a nib, holder, ink and paper and you’re ready to go.
This equipment is easily found in craft or art shops.
You can perfect your technique by using Lauren’s helpful drill sheets. Make sure you keep your grip relaxed and don’t tense up!
Repeating these drills will help you to improve your mark making and allow you to write more fluidly.
