10 DIY Calligraphy Projects to Get Your Hobby Started
With Pinterest exploding over the last few years, DIY is bigger than ever (hooray!). Recently we’ve been seeing what we call DIO (do it offline — you know, the call to actually turn those Pinned projects into the real thing) becoming a mantra. From pottery to woodworking to cooking, there are many forms of art that people are doing without a phone in hand. One of our favorite analog activities is calligraphy. We love it so much we have two B+C e-classes to teach you how to maneuver your pen and create gorgeous letters! Taught by the incredibly talented Lauren Essl, Calligraphy 101 will show you the basics, like holding your pen and getting the ink to meet the paper without splattering. In her second class, Calligraphy 201, you’ll dive deeper into the artistry of penmanship. Once you get into the flow and are ready to practice, we’ve got some great DIYs and inspiration for your next calligraphy project. Check it out.
