Tuesday 30th April 2019 – Modern Calligraphy Workshop

Tuesday 30th April 2019 - Modern Calligraphy Workshop
Learn how to write beautifully using ink and nib on this modern calligraphy course with Sophie Roberts. Suitable for complete beginners this class will teach you everything you need to know starting right at the basics.
After a brief introduction to the tools, you will start by practising shapes and strokes and then move onto letterforms, learning how to write each calligraphy letter. By the end of the course you will have started to do joined up lettering to take onto work on any phrase, or word you wish. Sophie will be on hand to give you tips and techniques to improve your beginners hand and create your own unique style of lettering.
All attendees will be provided with a Calligraphy Starter Kit, including handouts, paper, pen and ink to use and take home, providing everything you need to start your calligraphy journey!
