Calligraphy Resources

calligraphy resources // wink & wonder

A friend of mine wanted to learn calligraphy and asked if there were any classes available. I love getting detailed info when I ask for help and also like to pay that forward when people ask me for guidance, so I thought a dedicated post made the most sense!

I have a lot (and I mean A LOT) of bookmarks, Pinterest boards and blogs I go to when doing research and looking for inspiration. For a newbie, all that content can be really overwhelming... I know I felt that way when I first wanted to learn. Rather than giving a vague answer, I sent my friend a list of favorite places, supplies and people to follow on their new calligraphic journey. Here's are some of my calligraphy-related favs:

Note: I updated the list on 12/1/16 to include more awesomeness!
