an introduction to modern calligraphy

The Bell Inn, Godstone, Surrey, RH9 8DX


saturday 17 june, 2017
10.30am - 1.30pm

This fun, intensive workshop introduces you to
the basics of modern calligraphy.

During your three hour lesson you will learn how to - 

~ use a dip pen and nib ~
~ create basic letter strokes ~
~ form lowercase and uppercase letters ~
~ join letters to form words and sentences ~
~ develop your own modern style ~

You will be given plenty of individual attention and ample time to practice your new skill. By the end of your lesson you may even be able to write your name or a short phrase! With comprehensive notes and worksheets, you can continue practicing your newfound skill at home. Light refreshments and a full starter kit are provided.

I really appreciated all the attention to detail - the venue, the room set-up, the materials, the pacing of the session; even the refreshments were beautiful.
A good ‘taster’ on the art of calligraphy. A lovely way to spend a Saturday morning to get your creative juices (ink) flowing!
It was great to receive tuition and feedback that you can’t get from a book or the internet, such as how to hold the pen, the right pressure and the right angle to write.
