Mindful Modern Calligraphy for Beginners

Expert Tuition


Join us for a morning at the inspirational Well House Yoga Space, Felliscliffe, near Harrogate for a unique combination of Modern Calligraphy for Beginners and Movement for Mindfulness from the calming expertise of Lucy Croucher.
This joyful workshop begins with gentle stretches in Lucy’s light-filled studio overlooking the glorious Yorkshire countryside. We will ease ourselves into creativity by warming up the upper body and the muscles used to create modern calligraphy, whilst focussing our minds in readiness for learning the fascinating art of lovely lettering.
You’ll learn how to harness the power of mindfulness and breath work to flow from one position to another, then apply the same principles when you learn how to form each beautiful letter.
Our Workshop for Beginners to Modern Calligraphy comes next. We will guide you through the basics of dip pen calligraphy. You’ll learn how to access this wonderful art form through a series of warm-ups, leading into the alphabet and finishing with some simple words and phrases to help you create a touch of hand lettered loveliness to cards, gift tags and artwork.
We’ll break half-way through the morning for some delicious homemade refreshments and you’ll be welcome to explore the sunny Zen garden and Japanese loggia.
Lucy will finish our workshop with some stretching and a guided relaxation so we’re feeling energised and ready to take on the world!
It’s a whole morning of fun and creativity, learning wonderful new skills in beautiful surroundings, plus you’ll also have your starter modern calligraphy kit to continue the good work at home.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
