In this 3-hour L2M class, you will receive one-on-one instruction from woodworker Stephen Parsons to learn how to turn a simple calligraphy pen (or dip pen). The lesson will include a safety overview, followed by a step-by-step demonstration and practice session teaching you how to turn between centres (spindle turning) and to design and produce a basic calligraphic/ dip pen. You will take home a finished pen including nib holder and nib, and a handout providing step-by-step instructions for turning this pen, as well as ideas for pen design and useful references. Note: woodworking by nature often involves work with sharp instruments and equipment that may present a risk of injury. While Chez Craft classes always contain safety instruction and close supervision, you will be asked to sign a waiver of liability for any injury sustained during the lesson.
