QTY:

We have a calligraphy workshop where you will learn the basic principles of both traditional and modern techniques while experimenting with a variety of handwritten lettering styles.

You’ll learn how to write with a nib and ink pen as well as a brush and develop your skills with plenty of support from tutor Caroline Coates. Tailored to beginners, you will receive step-by-step instructions to enable you to master individual letter formations.

After you have explored some different styles, you will then plan and design your calligraphy piece to create your own unique art to hang and share.

Calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will be provided.

With our guidance and your practice, you’ll soon be writing like a scribe!

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those looking to refresh their skills.
