Hi All


Hi all.

I'm Rachel from Kent, UK.  I've been interested in calligraphy since childhood but decided 2022 was the year I'd  pick up one of the many hand lettering /calligraphy books I've collected and get stuck in.  My husband bought me a beautiful calligraphy kit for Christmas and since then I've been addicted.  I never realised how meditative it is.  Looking forward to seeing everyone's beautiful work

Erica McPhee:
Hi Rachel,
Yes! I find it very meditative as well. Glad you are off to a good start. What kind of calligraphy are you doing? Broad pen, pointed pen, brush? I like them all! Let us know if you have questions as you go along. Welcome!  :)

Thank you Erica.  So far pointed pen is my favourite and the choices of ink are amazing.  I've just started your wonderful copperplate tutorials, which are amazing, thank you.
