Included in learning the basics is how to practice. You'll learn the technique of drawing your letters while you create thoughtful handwritten notes and projects that will dazzle your friends and family.

I have been playing with handwriting since I could dot my "i's" with circles. I learned calligraphy in 7th grade and fell in love with it, relishing the left-handed challenge that calligraphy brings! I won the accolade of the best left-handed calligrapher in my Montessori middle school in Hyde Park from my art teacher who taught me. From this more-than-a-decade-long hobby I have created birthday cards, anniversary cards, mother's day cards, any occasion cards (the most fun!) to send to friends, family, loved ones, and randos! Most recently I consulted a local electronics business to create custom made holiday cards, complete with personalized corporate gift for their vendors and partners. I also have posters of song lyrics I fell in love with to, literally, be surrounded by words. Check out my claim to fame at my Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JHWCalligraphy. Can't wait to start beautifying letters with you! Let's start lettering! Jessica
