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.
