Calligraphy is an art that creates beautiful impressions of letters by concept of thick and thin and can be learnt easily with a few tricks and knacks. It is very simple to begin learning calligraphy. You just have to assemble the tools required which comprise of :

1) A writing tool (pen/brush) 
2) Ink or medium to write 
3) Paper or any other surface on which calligraphy has to be done 
4) A supporting surface
And you can begin. Cater to services of a professional through home tutorials, opt for an on line learning course or master it your own self is all a matter of preference.  

But the basic three skills that need to be controlled and worked upon are: keeping the nib at an unchanged angle which does not turn while forming lines and curves to give them regular shape, lead the nib gently rather than pushing it so that the flow is easy and effortless with free strokes and lastly make accurate lines and curves.  

Once you master the skills, you will indeed become a skilled calligrapher.
