Minimum Recommended Supplies

Calligraphy Pens

  • Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen – I recommend the following sizes for this workshop. If you are less experienced with blackletter calligraphy, you may find it easier to work with the smaller size.

Ink

Each Pilot Parallel pen comes with two ink cartridges, one black and one red, therefore you will not need any additional ink

Paper

The papers mentioned below are only a recommendation. You can, of course, use any paper that you prefer. Using a higher quality paper than standard printer paper is preferable because it will minimize or prevent ink bleed, making your work look better and your practice sessions more enjoyable.
