Your Outcome

Too many aspiring calligraphers frustrate themselves not being able to figure out why their work just doesn’t look “right”.

So let me be clear… it’s because you’re missing a step.

They’re called “Basic strokes”, or “Drills”- they’re the absolute backbone to you learning calligraphy. And too many people don’t know they exist.

You're probably doing what I did:

– Creepin’ all the best Instagram accounts thinking “I’m crafty- I could do that!” only to give it a go and totally suck

– Googling all day trying to figure out what friggin‘ pens, paper, and inks to buy (and where!)

– Buying all of the wrong supplies (despite your best Google efforts) and wasting all of your money at the art store

– Finally getting the right supplies set up, and then realizing that magical pen doesn’t automatically make you any better

Let's change all that

What Students Say

It has been incredibly frustrating but so much more satisfying to actually see improvement and progress.

I have absolutely loved the workbooks, this community, and this experience. It has breathed some life into my amateur lettering. It has been incredibly frustrating but so much more satisfying to actually see improvement and progress. Thank you so much for all that you do and for sharing your talent!


Donna Yates

These workbooks have been fantastic and I've made so much more progress with them than I ever expected! My previous attempts at calligraphy were nowhere near as successful or enjoyable!


Alexa Bisson

When I started with the drills, I was floored by how hard it was to control the brush pen. But, as I got into the drills I was so glad for Becca's insight and calm encouragements. The improvement over the first 4 weeks was amazing. I went from a complete dud with the brush pen to actually being able to make some nice marks - the journey continues!
