About the Course

This is an introduction to the principles of broad edged calligraphy beginning with lower case letterforms followed by capitals, numerals, letter and word spacing and eventually progressing to write a short quotation. The course will include setting up your work station, ruling up your guidelines and mark making exercises to help convey the importance of pen angle.

During the class there will be group and individual demonstrations. You will be given examples and worksheets which enable you to develop at your own pace. It will be beneficial if you can do some practise between sessions.

By the end of the course beginners should be able to:
- Set up their work space
- Demonstrate how to write with a pen held at a specific pen angle
- Write an alphabet with unified letterforms
- Write capital letterforms

Intermediate students should be able to:
- Write a short quotation
