About the Course

Calligraphy is the art of producing written work with a beautiful appearance. In ancient times religious works, royal decrees, books and plays were all written by hand and so began the art of creating beautifully presented letters. On this break you can learn the art of calligraphy whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience. Our experienced leader will give demonstrations, talking you through the different pens and nibs you can use and the importance of holding the pen correctly. You’ll practice what you’re shown and will soon be turning your handwriting into a thing of beauty. You can then use your new-found skills for invites, cards, decorating your home and much more.

Holiday highlights
- Discover the ancient art of calligraphy
- Create fantastic works of art using a variety of pens and nibs
- Build your confidence in small groups of 15 people or fewer
- Take away the skills you learn to use at home
