This course, led by local Calligrapher Adele Dark, will be a gentle introduction to the art and craft of Calligraphy. You will learn about pens, paper, ink and more. Her wish is that students will fall in love with this beautiful, historical art and want to continue a personal journey of discovery and begin to develop skills to be able to design your own cards, posters and artwork. You will explore the Foundational lower case hand developed by the Godfather of English Calligraphy Edward Johnston. This is an eight week class for beginners.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
