Course Start Dates
Saturday 2nd December 2017


This is intended to be an enjoyable and informal Saturday workshop to help you create your own cards and gift tags for Christmas. The class is taught by two experienced calligraphers who also run both traditional and modern calligraphy classes.
The class is primarily aimed at those with some calligraphy experience - either traditional or modern, but we will accept a small number of complete beginners.
Beginners will spend the morning learning the basics through demonstrations and practice whilst the improvers will do some warm-up exercises, use colour and refine lettering and spacing then experiment with brush pens before moving on to working on a chosen design.
The afternoon session will be given over to producing a card and/or tags using one of our templates or your own design. We will also give you some hints and tips about printing copies of your final card.

What's included in the price?

The cost includes refreshments but does NOT include lunch. There are plenty of shops and cafes nearby.
Everyone receives a pack containing sheets of watercolour paper, coloured paper and a card blank; complete beginners can purchase a starter pack comprising a nib, holder, ink, practice paper and guidance notes from the tutor for £5.00.
There will be a variety of inks, paints, markers, brush pens and templates available for use on the day. (Includes gold and silver paint/markers)
To enrol, please contact us and we will send you a booking form with a list of materials which you will need to bring with you. The course fee is payable in advance; full details are on the booking form.
