Come along and spend a day being introduced to the art of calligraphy and learn techniques to achieve beautiful lettering for stationery, invitations, signs and cards. Learn how to write beautifully using ink and nib, unlock your creativity and explore the classic art form of calligraphy in your own unique style. Students will each make their very own Alphabet book, trying different scripts for each of the letters, and gaining a taste for the many different scripts that there are to learn. Each student will leave with their booklet from the workshop, a beautiful record of everything they have learned.
Students are not required to bring any materials. Your course fee includes a starter pack of folder, notes, paper and pen. Paper and pigments etc will be provided for use during the course. If you already have any tools such as ink or pens, feel free to bring these along so the instructor can guide you in using them. For those who wish to move beyond the introductory stage, Margaret will have other pens available for you to purchase in the class. And she can give you advice if you wish to source your own.
