Often defined as the art of creative lettering, this planned course of lessons will teach you the basic strokes and proportions of the Foundational Hand from where you will gain confidence to explore and practise many other styles . Those with a little more experience will be led on to more advanced writing techniques.
We will be initially using broad- nibbed calligraphy pens to establish the basic hand, then progress on to experimenting with different tools such as brush and reed pens.
These classes are aimed at complete beginners plus anyone with some previous lettering experience wishing to refresh and progress their technique. Those who have attended the class before are welcome to return to progress their technique and knowledge!
Materials List
  • A Calligraphy pen
