Becca creates amazing lettering pieces herself, but she’s also an amazing teacher.
Her videos made a big impact on my lettering journey because she is great at explaining the process and making even the boring, repetitive exercises look fun.

These ladies are wonderful calligraphy artists and share many materials to help you get started.
The video below is a good one to start with brush calligraphy, and they even offer a free practice worksheet.
They actually also have a wonderful set of YouTube videos about faux calligraphy.

But enough of those, how about the free classes I was talking about?

Just buy one good one, and it will be enough to start working on your calligraphy.
Which one to buy? Here are a few of my favorites:
I want to mention also Archer and Olive Calliograph pens. They are pretty similar to Tombow Dual Brush pens, but some with two brush ends and have a different set of colors.
