WORKSHOP : October 11, 2019.
An Introduction to Modern Calligraphy
Time: 2.30 – 4.30
Calligraphy pens aren’t as mysterious as they seem – in fact, in this workshop calligrapher Claire Gould will show you everything you need to know to make magic come out of your calligraphy pen.
We’ll start with assembling a pen and spooning up ink. We’ll all make flowy, swirly shapes and then letters and words. I’ll show you how, with demonstrations at every stage of the process. Best of all, you get to keep your modern calligraphy set at the end of the class! Included are your pen + nib, ink and worksheets.
There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like.
Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) I will help you along the way!
