Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. Our professional calligrapher will guide you through the structure and principles of Italic, a versatile flowing calligraphy and probably the most often-used style in contemporary lettering, with consideration for design, materials, colour and bookmaking. There will be individual personal tuition, with demonstrations and discussions that will develop your calligraphy and design skills. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.
