In this session, Nancy Moy Calligraphy, a NYC-based calligrapher and painter taught the basics of watercolor lettering.
She taught the 8 basic strokes and how to write a few words using products from some of my favorite brands (Sakura, Holbein, and Legion) and how to add a special touch to gifts.
Bernard Maisner, renowned celebrity calligrapher and fine stationer, made a guest appearance at the NSS. Bernard demonstrated and shared his amazing calligraphic skills with attendees of the show. He will magically wrote out participants' names in his famous super-flourished “full-page” calligraphy script, using an old-fashioned dip pen and ink, as a complimentary gift.
Modern calligraphy is a free-form calligraphy style that is all about personalizing your writing. Danielle Rothman taught the art of modern calligraphy. Participants learned about brush and faux calligraphy, practiced the 8 basic strokes that make up all letters, and created a fun project to take home.
