Introduction to calligraphy
Calligraphy literally means 'the art of beautiful writing'. Learn how in our relaxed and informal beginner workshops and start on your journey to creating elegant stationery, cards, tags and so much more!
No experience is needed and you do not need to have beautiful handwriting. The workshop is suitable for both right and left-handers. Our tutor Leanda will introduce you to the tools needed to create this elegant style of writing and how to use them. You will discover how to use a dip pen and nib and what ink to use with them.
After a short demo, you will learn how to create the basic strokes used in each letterform before going on to practicing each letter of the alphabet. After that you will put letters together to form words before finally writing out your own names or short phrases. At the end of the workshop, you will have the knowledge required to go away and improve upon your newfound skill.
A full starter kit including a pen, nib and ink and worksheets are yours to keep.
This workshop is led by Leanda.
