Want to learn the beautiful art of pointed pen calligraphy, but it looks too intimidating?
Have you been trying pointed pen lettering on your own, but you're getting super frustrated with it?
When I first started learning calligraphy, I spent a lot of time reading blogs and watching videos to figure out what tools to buy, and how to write. I love the process of researching, but it took me a very long time to figure things out on my own.
Also, my progress was really slow. I was struggling constantly with the tools and creating letters that look beautiful. It was so frustrating to look at my work and knew it wasn’t quite right, but I didn’t know what was wrong with it or how to achieve the result.
It wasn’t until I took an in-person workshop with an instructor that I finally saw improvement! Although I still needed a lot of practice, I finally have a better understanding of how to use the tools, and have enough knowledge to assess my work.
Pointed pen calligraphy can be challenging to pick up, and requires a set of skills that you need to learn.
People tell me all the time that they think it looks easy until they try it themselves. It’s easy to get frustrated when you’re brand new. In addition to learning the basic strokes, other elements such as the way you hold the pen, the way you sit, how you position the paper, etc. all play a critical role in executing each stroke.
There are so many reasons why I love calligraphy. It allows me to relax when I'm experiencing stress. It also serves as a creative outlet for me.
But the main reason why I love calligraphy is the connection I get to build through this art from. Once you master this skill, not only are you able to create beautiful words, you’ll get to connect with other people through sharing meaningful, loving and encouraging messages with them.
That’s why I love calligraphy, and I don’t want you to get intimated by it, or give up because of frustration!

“I recently worked with Claudia on our 3rd WIPA Toronto Event at The Richmond. she supplied us with personalized wine glasses with our names engraved on them in calligraphy as well as a mirror seating chart. this was such a beautiful touch for our event. each of our guests were able to take home this beautiful piece of art work. All the names were centered and in proper proportion to the glass– I don’t know how she does this! I know this took a lot of time to prepare and create. the glasses were also cleaned and polished!
Throughout the planning process Claudia was quick to respond and a pleasure to work with. She is very talented and I highly recommend her services!”

“My vision for my wedding day was to have a professional calligrapher create my seating chart on a mirror. Claudia was highly recommended through one of my friends and I decided to choose her to design and create my seating chart. Claudia was extremely organized and wanted to learn more about my vision. She made sure to keep me updated throughout the process and she completed the seating chart in a timely fashion. Once I received the mirror, I was extremely happy with the results and my guests were too! I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a calligrapher.”
