A Gold Mine of Online Resources

A Gold Mine of Online Resources


Eureka! I've struck gold!

Online Resources for downloadable Calligraphy Worksheets

The Postman's Knock

Thank Goodness for the internet! Without it I would have never struck gold and discovered the wealth of online resources! I'm a city girl stuck in a very puny town in the humongous state of Alaska! My small town is nice, but lacks a lot of the creative lifestyle conveniences. However, I'm so grateful it does have one modern convenience - the internet! 

Lindsey at The Postman's Knock (TPK) is very talented and her site is jam-packed with online resources! Her modern calligraphy worksheets are pure GOLD and she prices them at the bargain price of a latte ($5)! So far, I have purchase three lattes. :) 

  • Her worksheets include:
  • A brief introduction of the calligraphy style
  • A list of recommended supplies
  • Detailed exemplars for faux calligraphy and dip pen
  • Numbers and word practice sheets for examples of letter connections

I can't say enough good things about the resources Lindsey has available on her blog. Besides the modern calligraphy downloadable worksheets, she offers of gold mines including watercolor tutorials to envelope art. Needless to say, The Postman's Knock is full of shimmery gold inspiration and downladable worksheets to help develop solid gold calligraphy muscle memory.
