Modern Calligraphy stems from traditional pointed pen calligraphy. While traditional styles were focused on creating near perfect letterforms and slants, modern calligraphy encourages the writer to break the rules and explore the flexibility of the tools. Workshops focus on teaching you the basics to get started (you have the learn the rules to break them!), then you are encouraged to continue your practice by creating your own styles and exploring the tools.
