About the Course
If you have always hankered to try your hand at calligraphy then this is the workshop for you!
I will show you how to write a sharpened italic script, step by step, first with a pencil then with a square edged fibre tip pen so that you get used to holding the pen correctly. I will then demonstrate how to form the letters with a calligraphy pen and dip pen/ink.
I’ll show you how to write words and sentences with demonstrations at every stage of the process and will back this up with worksheets for you to take home so that you can practise further. And of course you will receive personal tuition during the workshop to ensure that you are on the right lines!
The tutor, Nick Caulkin (aka Nick the Nibs) has been teaching calligraphy for nearly 40 years. With a wealth of experience as both a teacher and a freelance calligrapher, he has undertaken work for numerous organisations, companies and educational establishments.
