I’ve assembled these worksheets for anyone who wants to get started with modern calligraphy or who wants to learn a new calligraphic style. You can choose between 4 writing styles, each is a little bit different and has its own personality. All in all it’s a mixture of styles that I use in my own work and some fun variants.
I’ve designed the practice sheets so that you can print them out and practice directly on the paper (if you use high quality printer paper that can be used with a calligraphy pen – I have assembled some tips here) or you can just print them off and use them with a lightbox and a sheet of layout paper.
For each style there’s a whole alphabet, caps and lower case, as well as numbers and basic punctuation.
The styles in detail:
- No. 1: A basic round, classic style
- No. 2: a bit fancy, more dramatic style
- No. 3: a very elegant style, with a few flourishes
- No. 4: an informal upright script style
You can get all of the 4 practice sheets when you sign up to my free course Calligraphy Basics:

I created this free course so you can focus on the basic techniques and information connected with calligraphy practice. Maybe you’re just starting out with calligraphy or you have been practicing for a while - I know how overwhelming all the tips can be, especially if you search around the internet. I’ve thought about what I consider essential for calligraphic practice and what I’ve learned from questions from my audience.
