Combo Beginner’s Calligraphy & Brush Letter-Full

Combo Beginner’s Calligraphy & Brush Letter-Full


This is a combined option of the two separate workshops we have running on 6th August. Come and play with us for the day and enjoy a discounted rate.

Start the day with learning how to write with a traditional dip pen, using lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. Claire will teach the basics of a modern calligraphy alphabet and show you how to vary the flow of your lettering to create different styles!

Break for lunch - please bring packed lunch if attending both workshops. There will be endless cake and refreshments available during each session.

The afternoon session will be all about modern brush lettering and exploring the possibilities for writing with brush pens!

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 day you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and guidelines. Claire will 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. Please bring cash for this.
