New Class at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts! Does your handwriting need a makeover? In this class you will be introduced to Cursive Italic writing with a flat nib. Designed during the Renaissance, this handwriting style is making a comeback for its beauty, speed and elegance. The basic shape of the Italic letter, joins, flourishes and use of a flat nib pen will be covered. We will use a flat felt-tipped flat, and options for calligraphy fountain pens will be discussed. If you have a calligraphy fountain pen 1.1 mm or smaller, bring it. All supplies are included.

Saturday, February 24th 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
