Spend the day learning a new skill. Spend the morning learning Modern Calligraphy and in the afternoon move on to Brush Lettering.
Join tutor Helen Wallace in a beginner's workshop to learn this relaxing, mindful skill. The perfect way to unwind.
Using ink and nib we begin Modern Calligraphy by creating marks and strokes then progress to the upper and lowercase alphabet. The pen holder is suitable for both right and left-handed use.
Following this, we practice joining letters to write words and phrases to create our very own personalised greeting card.
You will be provided with lots of guidance, tips and tools aimed to help build your confidence in Modern Calligraphy.
After lunch, you will learn the basic techniques of Brush Lettering. You will explore mark-making, before going on to practice the alphabet, words and phrases.
You will finish by creating an A4 banner with a quote of your choice. You will receive lots of tips and guidance as you work through the practice sheets, building confidence with the brush and develop your own lettering style.
