I’m so incredibly excited that we’ve finally gotten the details ironed out and we’re ready to go with a six week in-depth calligraphy class, taught by expert calligrapher Salman Khattak. I actually thought about joining myself (if Salman would take me!), but Caleb’s bedtime is currently a time conflict – I’m keeping my fingers crossed for spring, when we’re hoping to run another in-depth course on different calligraphic hands and styles.
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.
It’s Friday! And it’s back to school! What could be even better?? We’ve got lots of new products to share.
Here are some of the first few, mostly calligraphy related.
We got a few new nibs in from Brause – the Rose, the 1 mm and 2.5 mm and the Index Nib (can you guess which one is my new favourite?? – having tried none of the four, of course my new favourite is the Index Finger).
While we mostly are expanding our nib selection based on calligrapher’s and customer’s requests and recommendations, I’ve also had a few customers bring in their Noodler’s Flex pens and other fountain pens modified to take dip pen nibs for true flex. I’ll have to try one myself to see how it works!
