Hi all, I started doing Beginners' Calligraphy at Morley College (in London) in Autumn 2014, and wanted to share some of the results here for feedback / encouragement / advice / anything really! I'm into the 2nd term, each term has one 2 1/2 hour session a week, for 10 weeks. We look at 3-ish hands per term, as well as touching on things like blind embossing, gilding, colour theory etc. So it's a bit of a whistle stop tour of calligraphy, but it's giving me the desire to go deeper, and helped me improve a surprising amount. I was getting really frustrated practising alone, from books, as I was having the same problems over & over, but some guidance from a tutor in person has helped me address my difficulties. I need a lot more practice, but the photos below show pretty much where I'm at with Foundation Hand, Blackletter, Uncials, and Versals.
