In the age of giga-octets, touch screens and contactless payments, learning Calligraphy might seem like something only great-grandparents would do. But that's not true. Over the last few years, more and more people have picked up pen & paper to practise many different types of calligraphy: our own latin-based alphabet (our specialty), as well as oriental calligraphies.
A contemporary pastime.
Some people like to call calligraphy "yoga for the soul". When you are focused on your breathing, thinking about your upstrokes and downstrokes, you can't be worried about that last business meeting or what you're going to make for dinner tonight, nor when the kids' next dental appointment is. Take a deep breath, concentrate on your letter and let the ink flow.
Let Calligraphy take the strain.
Just starting out in Calligraphy? You won't need to spend a fortune in supplies, like you do with other hobbies. Get a pen-holder and nib, a jar of ink and some good quality paper ... and you're ready to begin. Later on, you'll want to add markers, automatic pens, brush pens and the other fun tools to your kit. Of course, it's lots of fun to experiment with different papers and supports, too.
The future's bright. The future's Calligraphy.
