‘Beginners Two by Post’
Our Comprehensive Tutorial Booklet for Next Steps in Modern Calligraphy
PLUS Exclusive Kit
Our inspiring and informative ‘Beginners Two by Post’ is all about building on the basics that you have learned in modern calligraphy. It’s the perfect follow-on from our ‘Complete Package for Beginners’.
You’ll already have a good idea about how to form each letter of the alphabet and how to use pressure to achieve a beautiful contrast between your letterforms; now you’re ready to move up a gear and add some serious style.
This detailed Tutorial Booklet and Exclusive Kit have been carefully designed to guide you through a series of fun, yet achievable, steps that will inspire you to add some bounce and flair to your writing. Plus, you’ll learn how to create gorgeous small pieces of design from even the simplest of words and phrases.
After warming up you’ll move onto looking at the differences between handwriting and modern calligraphy. Next are the tips for joining up, or more accurately the illusion of joining up!
After that we’ll encourage you to play with your lettering to achieve different effects. Jools will share her graphic design expertise so you’ll understand the principles of how to design your lettering to create a small piece of wall art to be proud of.
The last section of your detailed Beginners Two booklet covers how to practise, where to find further inspiration for your lettering, and we’ll open our calligraphy kits to share the secrets of our favourite things with you. Full of tips and tricks, we’ve designed this Booklet to be the type of resource you’ll want to return to again and again.
