5 Websites for Beginners Learning Calligraphy

February 19, 2018

There are so many websites and youtube videos that teach you how to start with brush lettering and the basics of calligraphy.

I wanted to learn how to master brush-lettering and handwriting so that I can make my own cards and gift tags.

That was the first reason I started to search and google brush-lettering basics.

But while going through many sites and videos online, I ran into so many that didn’t show me the basics.

I didn’t know why my writing wasn’t turning out like the videos and why it was so hard for me to get the smooth lines that everyone else was writing.

I was hard enough finding the brush pens that everyone was using (Tombow dual brush pens and the Fudenosuke pens) in Korea but getting the lettering to go in the direction I wanted to was even harder!

So then I started to REALLY do my searching. I picked sites and people that had the specific styles I wanted to be able to do too. Then I narrowed it down to the FREE practice sheets and REAL basic, and when I say basic, I mean literally BASIC BASIC tutorials.

So if you’re in Korea and want to purchase a TOMBOW pen like me, go here.

And for the sites with good tutorials and practice sheets.
