About the Course

Modern calligraphy has become very popular over the last few years and can be seen everywhere from publishing material, to menus, wedding stationery and cards. This is a more relaxed style of writing using a pointed dip pen compared to traditional calligraphy and is versatile and fun. The course will be taught by an experienced calligrapher who enjoy the challenge of new scripts and techniques and modern calligraphy is no exception.

The course will teach students from the beginning, but improvers are also welcome to attend. The course content will cover writing the alphabet, joining, spacing, layout, using coloured ink/paint and writing on different papers and creating coloured backgrounds. Other tools and materials will be briefly covered eg felt pens, brush calligraphy for writing larger letters.

The course runs for 6 consecutive weeks, start date above or contact us for details.
