About the Course
If you've never tried modern calligraphy before, join us in the morning to learn how to use a dip pen and nib to make beautiful flowing letters. We'll learn how to hold the pen, how to join letters and make a pretty bookmark with a motivational quote for you to take home.
You get to keep your calligraphy kit - a pen holder and nib and a set of worksheets covering all the basic modern calligraphy techniques.
Break for lunch - please bring a packed lunch if attending the full day. There will be endless cake and refreshments available during each session.
To really get ahead of the game, stay for the afternoon session to learn some trade secrets and develop your style with flourishing techniques and colour calligraphy.
We'll write some quotes and even show you how to write your initials in 22 carat gold.
This workshop is in two parts which naturally flow into one another. However if you only wish to learn the basics you can book the morning session only (contact us for details).
If you're already confident with pointed pen calligraphy and the modern lettering style (perhaps you've been to one of our modern calligraphy classes before) then you're welcome to join us for the afternoon session only (contact us for details).
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Both morning and afternoon workshops include all materials, refreshments and cake.
Calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will be provided - there's no need to bring anything with you.
At the end of the calligraphy workshop you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and guidelines as well as the goodies you’ve made on the day!
I'll also bring along a selection of inks and nibs for you to buy on the day if you've fallen in love with calligraphy and want to practice more at home!
