How to Use the Oblique Holder
Where to learn calligraphy
First, contact your local guild and see if there are any lessons going on. Face to face instruction is always your best bet.
You can also buy instructional books online, or check your bookstore or library.
DasherieMag is a new magazine for calligraphers, check it out for tutorials, projects, inspirational articles, featured artists etc.
Some calligraphers also offer online classes.
There are free lessons online as well. Check out IAMPETH, Youtube, Joe Vitolo’s book, etc. I have a series of Youtube tutorials called the Pointed Pen Calligraphy 101.
If you’re lucky, there is a calligraphy conference near you. Check out IAMPETH Convention, Legacies, Summit, Passionate Pen.
