Later this month, I'm taking starting a 6 week class on Copperplate Calligraphy and I cannot wait.

I find it so incredibly lovely. Even watching it being written by someone else lulls me into a state of general "ahhhhh".

This video is almost eight minutes long and shows only the word "Flourishing" being written. A nice reminder that there is beauty in slowness.


  1. oh wow, i wish i had the patience (and steady hand) for calligraphy! this is absolutely stunning.


    p.s. found you via the etsy blog team!

  2. How very beautiful! Also sounds like a really fun and interesting class! Enjoy :)

  3. Wow just learning the font looks hard let alone the accuracy of the wrist. Good luck! you will have to post some of your work once you finish the class.

  4. I'm so excited about the class. I've learned a lot on my own, but always feel like there is so much room to grow. I will definitely do "progress posts" as I go along - ink blobs, stained hands n' all. ;)

  5. Oh how awesome! I just love calligraphy, it's a lost art
