Event description
Join Lucy Empson in an introduction to calligraphy and hand lettering.

About this Event

This workshop is an introduction to calligraphy and hand lettering. You will be guided through the process of forming letters with an edged pen and also pointed nib and gouache paint/ ink. You will learn how to handle a dip pen & ink; the basic stokes and forming the letters of the alphabet. The workshop shows you the technique of hand-lettering, giving you the basis for developing your own individual style at home with practice.

There will be demonstrations and examples of calligraphy in different styles to look at. We will have lots of breaks (for tea and cake!) and a chance to look at how each other is getting on with learning this new skill.

We will look at traditional calligraphy with an edged pen. Modern Calligraphy is a popular informal hand that is written with a pointed nib and using ‘pressure and release’ to make the writing have more character.

Please bring an apron to protect clothing

This workshop will start promptly at 10am so please arrive to register by 9.45am.
