Sick of Googling, "How to Learn Calligraphy"?

Hey calligra-friend! If you want instant access to my calligraphy basics course, you're in the right place! But I just wanted to let you know that I'll be kicking off a brand-new semester in July where we'll all learn and share our calligraphy practice together. You can learn more about it at


– Creepin’ all the best Instagram accounts thinking “I’m crafty- I could do that!” only to give it a go and totally suck

– Googling all day trying to figure out what friggin‘ pens, paper, and inks to buy (and where!)

– Buying all of the wrong supplies (despite your best Google efforts) and wasting all of your money at the art store

– Finally getting the right supplies set up, and then realizing that magical pen doesn’t automatically make you any better.


Too many aspiring calligraphers frustrate themselves not being able to figure out why their work just doesn’t look “right”. So let me be clear…


They’re called “BASIC STROKES”, or “DRILLS”- they’re the absolute backbone to you learning calligraphy. And too many people don’t know they exist.


Join me and hundreds of other students for this free basics course. We'll work alongside each other to start learning calligraphy the right way.

"I have absolutely loved the workbooks, this community, and this experience. It has breathed some life into my amateur lettering. It has been incredibly frustrating but so much more satisfying to actually see improvement and progress. Thank you so much for all that you do and for sharing your talent!"

"These workbooks have been fantastic and I've made so much more progress with them than I ever expected! My previous attempts at calligraphy were nowhere near as successful or enjoyable!!"

"When I started with the drills, I was floored by how hard it was to control the brush pen. But, as I got into the drills I was so glad for Becca's insight and calm encouragements. The improvement over the first 4 weeks was amazing. I went from a complete dud with the brush pen to actually being able to make some nice marks - the journey continues!"
