More about this course

Learn traditional pen-and-ink calligraphy in the French Cursive style using a broad nib

If you like calligraphy, and the French Cursive style appeals to you, then this course is for you.

Here's how it works: after the introduction and three general information lectures, you will learn how to form each letter through video demonstrations. Exercise sheets are provided so that you can sharpen your skills through repeated practice. There are 5 lessons dedicated to learning how to form each letter (lower case, numbers and punctuation).

Next, a sampler sheet is proposed so that you can rewrite the letters of the alphabet, this time in order.

In the projects section, why don't you print a clean sheet of guidelines and write your favourite saying in French Cursive? 

In our "tour of France" in French Cursive, we will move down through the alphabet, starting with Avignon, going next to Bordeaux, then Cannes ... all the way down to Zoza! As there are 26 letters in the alphabet, there are 26 lectures in this part of the course.

These courses will appeal to beginners and those with an intermediate level in calligraphy, although even the most advanced calligraphers will enjoy the Tour of France.

Join in!

The course project

Exercise sheets accompany most of the lectures. Just print them to work on them with your 2.5 mm broad nib or a 2.4 mm parallel pen.

A "sampler" worksheet is also included. This will help you to "reinforce" your learning experience!

Write your favourite saying or motto in French Cursive on a clean sheet of guidelines.
