2. An inkstick (sumi).

I've been teaching Calligraphy for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start writing basic letters and as time goes on you'll be able to feel more comfortable with calligraphy, . I use specialized books and my experience; I have a plans for each level of my calligraphy lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been practicing Calligraphy in a lot of western styles and Eastern from Copperplate to Blackletter to all sorts of Arabic Diwany, Naskh, Riq3a and A lot of Chinese and Japanese Brush styles. I can teach you the rules and provide you with ways to practice the letters. I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun :)
