Calligraphy and hand-lettering are art forms that are beautiful and easily accessible to anyone with the ability to pick up a pen or pencil. These four workshops will be an introduction to these art forms and will provide all you need to continue and develop your skills in your own time.
Beginning with the basics of using dip-pens and ink, basic letterforms and composition, the first two workshops will help beginners and more experienced calligraphers alike to develop and improve their skills. The third and fourth workshops will begin to look at hand-lettering in general and will include the basics of letterforms and typography, drawing skills and techniques and media such as chalk-board and brush-lettering, though those who would like to continue to develop their calligraphy from the first workshops are welcome to do this.
All basic materials will be provided though participants are welcome to bring their own tools
We need a minimum of 4 people to run this workshop and the workshop is open to 10 years and over if accompanied by a full paying adult.
