Join us for a day of Modern Calligraphy.
Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing a skill that Danielle has mastered through hours of dedicated practice.
During the day Danielle will share her abundant knowledge of calligraphy, the supplies and tools required and show you how to prepare and use them. For this course you will be using a pointed, flexible nib with an oblique pen holder, and ink.
The course is suitable for complete beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
A carefully selected kit will be provided which you can take home with you to continue your practice. You are welcome to bring your own supplies too if you have them. You will need to bring your own packed lunch but tea coffee and biscuits will be provided

I hadn't done any painting since my school days (a long time ago!) and was pretty terrified but Janet walked everything through with such patience and encouragement I was able to get over my insecurities and paint a picture I was proud of! Everyone in the class I was in, had different insecurities but by the end everyone had painted a beautiful picture and felt confident that they could continue to grow! Her experience in painting flowers 'in the flesh' is well demonstrated and she knows how to bring out the delightful characters of every species; even the most tricky of characters! Her techniques for composition are genius!
Jill is a wonderful teacher with years of experience of glass art and teaching under her belt. Having never done anything like this before I was able to produce beautiful pieces in just a few short hours! The space at Cambridge Makers is also really lovely and welcoming and has excellent facilities.
