Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. Find out how to write with a broad nib so you can customise greeting cards or beautifully present your family tree or favourite poem.
I will teach you Foundation Hand; this is the elegant and versatile script in the picture above and is particularly suitable for beginners. We will start with some pen exercises to get you used to controlling a broad-edged nib and maintaining a constant pen-angle. Then we will progress to forming the letters of the Foundational Hand, both the minuscules and capitals. You may be able to complete a piece of work by the end of the course depending on how much practice you put in!
Please note that I am NOT teaching brush calligraphy or handwriting , although you might find your handwriting improves as a result of learning good pen control.
This ten-session course of calligraphy for beginners is starting on demand. Classes are 2 hours long and THE DAY / TIME IS FLEXIBLE from a choice of Monday - Friday, mornings or afternoons. The most popular day and time will be chosen. Sorry but I do not offer evening classes.
The cost for ten sessions will be decided on the basis of the number of students and is payable IN FULL at the first session. The course must attract a minimum of 4 students to run.

What's included in the price?

Tools and materials are available to buy from the tutor at a small cost. For example a dip pen and holder will cost £4. You will need plain paper to practice on, I recommend an A4 plain refill pad readily available on the high street for about £2:50.
