Modern Calligraphy Workshop
Calligraphy workshops are a lovely gift, we have such a fun afternoon… so why not book 2 places and bring your best friend, your mum or your other half?
Time: 1:00 to 3:30pm
A relaxed modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter where you will learn everything to get you started with quirky handwritten lettering styles.
You’ll learn how to write with a traditional dip pen, using lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. I’ll teach the basics of a modern calligraphy alphabet and show you how to vary the flow of your lettering to create different styles!
Calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will be provided – there’s no need to bring anything with you.
At the end of the calligraphy workshop you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and guidelines. I’ll also bring along a selection of inks and nibs for you to buy on the day if you’ve fallen in love with calligraphy and want to practice more at home!
