About the Course

This is a 6 week, 2.5 hours per week course in traditional calligraphy aimed at complete beginners or those with some experience. You'll be learning the Uncial script (Celtic-style lettering), taught by an experienced calligrapher.

Starting with a short pencil exercise, you'll learn how to form the letters using a broad -edged pen, space the words and sentences and finally have the skills to produce a small project in colour. You'll learn about layout, tools and techniques with lots of friendly encouragement and advice.

Please advise if you are left or right-handed so I can supply the correct nibs.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

A starter pack of 2 nibs, holder, ink, practice paper, alphabet exemplar and handouts is included. Tea and coffee are also included.

You'll need to bring a pencil, ruler, eraser, kitchen roll and a board; contact me and I will send a detailed information sheet.

To enrol, please contact me and I will send the information sheet; you then just need to confirm your attendance.

The full fee is payable on the first morning.
