Pointed Pen Calligraphy Class for Beginners
Saturday 18th February 2023
10am - 12:30pm
At this relaxing calligraphy class you’ll learn how to create beautiful hand lettering. You’ll practice making the basic strokes then use them to form letters and words in a modern calligraphy style, giving you a strong foundation to build on.
You’ll also get the chance to try out a range of different pens and make some gift tags and cards featuring your new-found lettering skills!
This class is a great introduction to modern calligraphy and perfect if you want to create your own stationery and hand-lettered home décor, or are looking for a creative and relaxing hobby.
Suitable for complete beginners and those needing a refresher.
All materials and tea & coffee are included. You’ll get to take away your own pen and be emailed a PDF of the worksheets we use.
What we'll cover
• Learn about how to use a pointed pen effectively and with control
• Find out why modern calligraphy is more about drawing than writing (and you don’t need good handwriting either!)
• Make the basic strokes and use them to build a beautiful alphabet
• Know how to start lettering words confidently for your own projects
There’ll be plenty of demonstrations and one-to-one tuition so you can really get to grips with using a brush pen and ask all your questions.
And if you’d like to purchase your own calligraphy materials to take home then I’ll be bringing my pop-up shop.
