Improver’s Calligraphy Workshops

Our long awaited Improver’s workshops will add depth and dimension to your practice! You’ll work with different inks and nibs to broaden your understanding of strokes and open up new ways of working with letter-forms!
Thursday 17th January 2019 / 7:00 to 9:30 pm
Further dates tbc soon!
Workshop Fee: £68 including Improver’s Practice Kit
This class is suitable for students of our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop or for those who have some experience of calligraphy. You should be comfortable using a dip pen and creating basic letter-forms with a variation in stroke thickness.
This workshop builds upon the knowledge and practice learnt in the beginner workshop. We start with some warm-up strokes and drills before reviewing the basic letter-forms. Then we take a look at common connectors and alternate letter-forms before trying our hand at some simple flourishes.
The second part of the workshop will focus on developing our own style and we'll get the chance to try out some coloured inks. The final project involves writing out a short quote, pulling together all the skills learnt in the class!
What we provide: A full Calligraphy kit including a wooden pen holder, brauss nib, frisk layout pad, white ink and new practice sheets with alternative letterforms and flourishing all put together into a personalised pack for you to take home on the day and continue your practice.
