About the Course

Join calligrapher & lettering artist Julie Chaney for a full-day calligraphy class in the riverside village of Mistley.

Immerse yourself in the art of beautiful writing - for pleasure, relaxation or study. After a short introduction to a variety of calligraphic styles, we will begin with the basics of forming elegant letters using pencil, dip pen and ink.  An array of tools and techniques used will also be explored and experimented with. There will be demonstrations of lettering and individual guidance to uncover the potential to expand your own ideas with a view to creating a unique piece of work.  

Beginners and Improvers are both welcome. A small group (max 7) means you'll enjoy personal and close tuition. This is part of a series of Wednesday classes, one every four weeks, booked individually with no commitment beyond each workshop.

Basic calligraphy materials are included and extra supplies will be available to buy.  You'll need to bring a few basic items such as pencil, ruler, etc., but a list will be provided on booking.  

The venue is a well-lit and peaceful workroom within the Mistley Quay Workshops with a beautiful view out over the River Stour.

There'll be plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits.  For lunch we usually eat in the lovely T-House just next door but you're welcome to bring sandwiches.

Unrestricted parking nearby.  Nearest railway station is Mistley, 2-3 minutes walk away.

Please note : Access to the building is via a staircase.
