Calligraphy for Children
The ancient art of Calligraphy can be a beautifully expressive art form, and an ideal way to nurture enjoyment of writing. Special nibs achieve the mixture of thin and broad strokes in calligraphy, and for left-handers the nib needs to be specifically angled to create the letter forms successfully, as in all our pens and sets.
|Sometimes pens with wider nibs like these can take a while to get the ink flowing. One good way of getting reluctant ink pens to start is to run the nib under a trickle of water from a tap and that can start pulling the ink through, then wipe carefully on some kitchen paper and you are off.|
|The calligraphy pens do have wider nibs than normal so it is important to make sure the flat end of the nib sits flat on the paper - they are designed with a left handed angle so that should be relatively easy in a normal writing position for a lefthander.|
