Set in the picturesque town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire, you’ll spend this 2 1/2 hour practical workshop exploring the wonderful art of lettering using faux modern 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, or make this as a special wedding, anniversary, new home or birthday 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.
Book alongside a friend or family member and enjoy some creative time together.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Tea, coffee, herbal teas and biscuits are provided at the start of the workshop.
The slate sign is yours to take home.
On the day, guests are welcome to purchase a kit of the pens that we will be using during the workshop.
