Modern Calligraphy (for beginners)

Modern Calligraphy (for beginners)


Come along to the beautiful Maul’s Wine Bar in Salisbury and learn the art of beautiful hand-lettering whilst sipping a glass of something nice! This workshop is suitable for anyone wanting to learn how to use traditional pen and ink with a contemporary flourish.

We will go through the pen stroke basics before working through each letter form and learning how to join it all together to create words in your own modern italic script.

All materials will be provided for you to use on the day. You will also be able to take your kit home with you to carry on practising.

Kit includes: nib, pen holder, letter reference sheets and a pot of ink

One glass of red/white wine or a soft drink alternative is included in the price.

Due to the nature of the location for this workshop it is open to adults aged 18+ only.

For the safety of myself and the other attendees, if you feel at all unwell in the 7 days leading up to the workshop, please contact me and I will find an alternative date for you to attend.
