This is a course aimed at complete beginners and those with some experience in calligraphy. The course is 12 weeks in total and runs on Monday evenings from 7-9pm. We have one week off for half term on 30th October. The last class is on 11th December 2017.
We have been practising Calligraphy for some 30 years and now teach evening classes and daytime workshops. In this session, complete beginners will learn the Uncial script. We start with pencils and advance through demonstrations and practice to a finished piece of calligraphy in colour. On the way, you will learn about inks, paints, paper and techniques.
Those with some experience will learn Roman capitals, a very graceful script which is also used as the capital letters for the Foundational Hand. You will also start with working in pencil and we hope, a finished piece in colour.
Both groups will work through a small project to help you understand colour, layout and design. It all sounds very technical, but it's informal and lively and we bring lots of examples for you to look at. And you may well be surprised at what you can achieve!
