This workshop explores the wonderful art of lettering using faux calligraphy techniques; a lettering technique to imitate the style of modern calligraphy using everyday pens. The workshop will begin with an overview of faux calligraphy and some lettering exercises to help you create letter forms. You will then use these skills to create your own wording on a slate sign, with a few words of your choosing using chalk pens. Choose to use this sign for your home or garden, as a snack platter or make this as a special wedding, anniversary, new home, birthday or Christmas gift for someone special.
This technique is ideal for individuals who would like to explore modern calligraphy more, or who struggle using a pointed pen, but want to create a similar lettering style that a nib produces.
All materials are provided. Simply arrive with an idea of what to put onto your slate piece. For your planning, the slate measures 28cm x 21cm.
Let’s make letters look beautiful!
