Inktober and Calligraphy

Wednesday, 9 October 2019  |  Admin

Brr it's cold.. what could be better than curling up by a warm fire with a furry friend and doing some sketching or calligraphy, yes folks it's Inktober 2019.
It was started by artist Jake Parker to help people focus on improving skills and developing positive drawing habits. The challenge for every day for the month of Inktober/October is to create an ink drawing and post it online.
Hashtag your art with #inktober and #inktober2019

Check the website inktober.com for the latest theme of the day and get some inspiration from https://www.instagram.com/inktoberworld/

Lots of classes are starting for calligraphy too this autumn -  we have loads of helpful things from beautiful Herbin jewel coloured inks to pens and journals also Clairefontaine journals with a dotted grids, practice books and Manuscripts sets for calligraphy, Rotring and Lamy calligraphy art pens and assorted loose nibs to try, even quill feathers - so it's just practice, practice, practice and keeping the fur/hands/paws off your projects.
