What exactly is Blackletter Calligraphy?

You might think it's just an old-fashioned style of lettering (it's literally called "Old English" in some books and references), but, from TV shows to logos, products, and advertising, it's still hugely popular in art, design, and branding.

Here are just a few examples of what you can create with these skills...

Calligraphy is one of the most rewarding skills you'll ever learn

Combining simple tools with a skill as familiar as writing the alphabet to make magic on a page is a joy

“How excellent that handwriting can provide anoutlet for skill and esthetic feeling…How satisfying whensomething ordinary and commonplace is raised toward the beautiful.”

– Alfred Fairbank, Calligrapher, Palaeographer, Author

From a recent study of school-aged children and adults at the Developmental Neuroscience Laboratory at NTNU:

“We conclude that because of the benefits of sensory-motor integration due to the larger involvement of the senses as well as fine and precisely controlled hand movements whenwriting by handand when drawing,it is vital to maintain both activities in a learning environment to facilitate and optimize learning.”

– Eva Ose Askvik, F. R. (Ruud) van der Weel and Audrey L. H. van der Meer. “The Importance of Cursive Handwriting Over Typewriting for Learning in the Classroom: A High-Density EEG Study of 12-Year-Old Children and Young Adults.” *Frontiers in Psychology* (First published: July 28, 2020)

From a recent study of 42 adults conducted at the Johns Hopkins Department of Cognitive Science:

“The finding that thebenefits of writing practice extend beyond penmanship to both letter and word comprehension and productionindicates that handwriting can be a productive use of learning time.”

– Robert W. Wiley and Brenda Rapp. “The Effects of Handwriting Experience on Literacy Learning.” Psychological Science (First published: June 29, 2021)

So, why do so many people give up on Blackletter?

It usually boils down to two things:

"Blackletter looks intimidating" and "I don't know where to start"

It looks intimidating

You see this beautiful writing out in the world or an artist online creates a masterpiece seemingly effortlessly, and you figure, "There's no way I could do that."

Every creative person, whether they practice for fun or have an audience of millions, knows this feeling but there are so many wonderful, rewarding experiences on the other side.

Using a lesson learned from a little locomotive all that's needed is a courageous pivot to: "I think I can..." 🚂

There's a universe of possibility in that one mental shift, and learning this art is easier than you think!

Where do I start?

Does this sound familiar? You find a book with lots of different alphabets, and they all have arrows pointing every which way for every single letter (often with instructions on twisting and turning your pen while making each line).

It feels like it would be a miracle to successfully pull off one letter - let alone a word, sentence, or an entire paragraph.

You still try - you get some supplies, make your first line, and the ink bleeds everywhere.  It's a mess and looks nothing like the book.

Learning calligraphy feels like mission impossible.

You absolutely can write beautifully

You can learn to create art that fills you with joy and dazzles your friends and family

So, how do you succeed and avoid all the uncertainty and frustration?

You get the right tools (what's great with calligraphy is they don't have to be expensive) and use a system that’s easy, fun, and that works

Next, all you need is a little guidance - a helping hand that's supportive, encouraging, and keeps you coming back for more because you're making progress (and enjoying the process along the way).

This class distills thousands of hours of teaching and learning experience into an immersive, comprehensive course.

Using the innovative new Blackletter Builder System you'll get a clear structure for learning every single letter.

By the end, you’ll know how to easily write a flexible lowercase and two uppercase alphabets.

Plus, all of the material is presented using a fun and positive teaching style that’s super supportive, encouraging you to play and have fun while you create 😊

You'll get value wherever you are in your journey...

I can’t tell you how many times I got lost looking at these building this class. Some of the books have hundreds of pages packed with amazing lettering, flourishes, cadels, and much, much, more!) – a lifetime of inspiration!

"The Blackletter Masterclass is amazing, I would recommend it to both beginners and more seasoned calligraphers alike.

I have always loved Tamer’s teaching style - it’s so laid-back and easy to follow, and you can feel the joy and sense of play, it’s addictive! And this style really comes through in the course.

I have some experience with Textualis Quadrata, but the way Tamer teaches it just made it click so much more for me, and yet freed me up to play with the shapes. I can see that this would be a fantastic course for a beginner, as he really lays out all the strokes in such a unique and understandable way.

Not only does this course include the basics, but it goes WAY beyond. Personal Q&A sessions, variations (so many!), flourishing, composition… It’s such a complete package. I feel like it’s melding together the education I have been cobbling together online for the past couple of years, all in one place.

If you are on the fence, just know that you will learn an incredible amount of information from a fantastic, very personable teacher."

- Adrienne

Who's the instructor?

If we haven’t met before – hi, I’m Tamer 👋
your friendly neighborhood calligrafriend

Ever since I was a kid, my heart’s belonged to the world of art and creativity – enchanted by the hum of lightsabers, the voyages of enterprising starships,  and the heroic deeds of superheroes.

From drawing to photography, music to fountain pens, I’ve had quite a creative journey – but when I found calligraphy, I knew I’d discovered something special.

I’ve been honored to have my work shown in exhibitions, galleries, and published internationally, but I found real magic in teaching and sharing the joy of calligraphy with thousands of enthusiastic creatives across the world.

A few of the spots you might have seen my work or classes

There’s nothing like seeing a student’s eyes light up, beaming with happiness because they made something they’re proud of.
