This tutorial shows ways of practicing strokes with a straight holder.
It's a perfect lesson for those who are new to using straight holders.

A nib is the pen tip that is used in calligraphy writing.
To use a nib, you will need to insert it into a pen holder.

The holder comes in two types: an oblique holder and a straight holder,
and each holder has a different shape.

In calligraphy, the letters should have a 55° slant.
The oblique holder has a flange that is already slanted at this angle.

While the straight holder doesn't have this angle and needs to be held at an angle,
some people prefer writing with a straight holder.

Maki Shimano teaches how to write with an oblique holder in another lesson,
but this time she shows how to write using a straight holder.

It lets you practice strokes which make up letters when writing with a straight holder.

◯How to hold the holder at an angle
◯The correct angle of the pen against the paper
◯Tips for making upstrokes and downstrokes

The lesson introduces the above tips and points.

It also explains how to set the nib into the straight holder,
so it is a suitable lesson for beginners as well.

In addition to the strokes, this lesson also explains how to write numbers.

It also comes with a worksheet which you can download and practice as many times as you like!
