If you are a lover of lettering or you simply want to learn a new skill, this workshop is a great opportunity to learn the basic techniques of modern calligraphy. You'll start by learning how to use your pen holder and nib and what materials work best. Then we will get working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes, and then move on to letter forms. By the end of the class you will have started to develop your own style with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help when needed. During the class, participants will design their own table top stationery including place cards, menus and table numbers, this will provide a chance to get creative; bringing some colour and illustration into the calligraphy practise.
