Always wanted to learn modern calligraphy but didn’t know where to start? Join calligraphy artist Caitlin McKenna for a live online Introduction to Modern Calligraphy workshop from the comfort of your home.
Whether you're a stationery addict, DIY bride planning your wedding or just intrigued with all things beautiful handwriting, this workshop will take you through the basics of using a dip calligraphy pen and ink. You will learn what modern calligraphy is, how to use a dip pen and ink and the basics of creating beautiful letterforms. You'll finish the workshop with your very own calligraphy print and the skills you need to add gorgeous hand-lettered details to your post, wedding, home decor and more.
This workshop will be run as a live video stream with Caitlin, NOT a pre-recorded video, so you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get one-to-one feedback on your work.
This class is suitable for beginners — no experience is necessary. Children over the age of 10 who are comfortable with joined up writing are also welcome.
