[Ended][Virtual Workshop] Folded Pen Calligraphy with @sarahtypes

July 29, 2020


Have you ever heard of a folded pen? Did you know you can DIY your own folded pen with common household items? Join us this Wednesday with Sarah to learn this unique style of calligraphy!


For this workshop, you will need to prepare the following materials. Once you’re registered for the workshop, you will receive access to instructions on making your own folded pen. It’s advisable that you prepare your pen before the workshop begins, however, we will be spending the first 15 minutes going over the steps of making one as well.

  • an empty aluminium can 
  • scissors
  • duct tape (a thick, sticky durable tape)
  • print out of the pen nib templates 
  • black permanent marker
  • gloves (for safety when cutting the can, as it may have sharp edges)
  • a wooden dowel or a pencil
  • calligraphy or sumi ink
  • smooth, bleed-proof paper

Please view Sarah’s tutorial and download the nib template to prepare your folded pen.
