    Each time the occasion calls for class and refinement, my first thought is to reach for the Pointed Pen. Truly, there's really nothing that comes quite close to the romance of beautiful, flowing script written with it!

    You might be feeling mystified by the odd-looking writing instruments and the unusual way that the pen is applied to paper. 

    Or you have an urge to fill up blank spaces with lines of beautiful, flowing script, but feel lost because you've always been embarrassed about  your own handwriting.

    Here's where I can help! At this introductory workshop, where we learn the fundamentals of Pointed Pen Calligraphy applied in a modern context, we will work together to clear up the mystery surrounding the Pointed Pen and all its persnickety ways. When we are through, I'm certain that you'll have enough confidence to get off to a great start!
