Letter Writing Club with Salman Khattak + An Intensive Calligraphy Class Opportunity

The Letter Writing Club meets monthly to mostly write letters, but also to gab a bit and share some coffee and treats. In September, we had an extra special treat – a visit from calligrapher Salman Khattak, who came to address envelopes in some of his beautiful scripts. This is a much overdue post with a few photos from the day.

I would’ve liked to show an actual envelope Salman created, but I didn’t want to show the addresses – here are a few examples of his work.

This is a great time to let you know we are considering a more intensive calligraphy course taught by Salman, over a period of weeks, for those of you that are more serious about studying this beautiful art. It would cover a few different scripts or hands in depth, as well as help you truly master the fundamentals. If you are interested, please let us know by sending an email to info@wonderpens.ca, or leave a comment here on the post, so we can get a gauge on if there are enough calligraphers out there to get this type of course going.

If you are interested, you would need to have taken the first Introduction to Calligraphy class as a pre-requisite. This course will not require you to be completely proficient in calligraphy by any means, but just to ensure that all students have a basic foundational knowledge in the strokes. With a smaller class size, Salman would be able to provide feedback and more one-on-one guidance. This would be a great class for graphic designers, lettering artists, folks interested in calligraphy on a more serious level.

And also, the Letter Writing Club normally runs the second Sunday of the month, but October’s second Sunday is Thanksgiving, so we are pushing it back one week to Sunday, October 18th – same time at 2pm.

    Oh man, that third photo, pretty sure that’s my phone he’s holding!

    Salman, thanks for the work on the my envelopes! For anyone who wasn’t there, I would add that not only was his skill with calligraphy impressive, so was his ability to work with 3 or 4 excited onlookers looming over him at the end of the table!

    Yes, I think I would be interested in finding out more about the course…
