Brush Lettering Calligraphy with Jane Lappage



Modern calligraphy is a fresh, new style that brings a flexibility and uniqueness that is both appealing and accessible. You will have seen this on trend script everywhere and the beauty of learning this style is that it is easy to master and personalise, making it unique to you. Come and join us on this workshop for a day of learning ‘Modern Calligraphy’ brush lettering - practice, layout and completing your own designed ‘Glitter bauble’. In the morning we will learn how to create the letters and look at design. For those of you that may have already been on Jane’s Modern Calligraphy class with the fine point nib you have an advantage, but it is still a new technique so don’t be fooled -we will still need to practice using the brush. After a break for lunch, the afternoon will concentrate on getting the design on the bauble glued and glittered. All material including large silver baubles (matt or shiny), practice paper, letters, lines, ink, glue and glitter will be supplied for you to create your own bauble. If time allows and you would like to do more (perhaps you know someone who will be feeling left out when you go home with just one) then you can do more for just the cost of the bauble. Please let us know in advance so that Jane can plan accordingly and more importantly, bring the right number of baubles for the class. Course Highlights • Friendly, comfortable and well lit environment • Use of all tools and materials needed to complete your projects • Generous table space • Clear information and demonstrations The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition from an experienced calligraphy artist. All products and more besides will be available to buy on the day so bring a little extra money for all those things you never knew you really wanted!!! Class sizes will be limited so get in touch soon to book your place.
