Experience some moments of calm and rest whilst learning modern brush pen lettering.
This modern calligraphy lettering workshop is for beginners, for anyone who would like to revisit calligraphy after a break, or if you are self taught and in need of some direction. Learning modern calligraphy lettering with a brush pen is a brilliant place to start your calligraphy adventure. We explore basic brush pen strokes, build these into letter shapes and then create words and calligraphy quotes. There are plenty of templates for you to trace over as well as experimenting with colour techniques and adding details to your calligraphy lettering.
There are many templates for you to choose from to create your own greetings cards and gift tags in the session using a light pad, so you have something beautiful to take away at the end of the session. In the workshop you can experiment with all of my brush pens from different manufacturers – great for deciding which pens you prefer without having to pay for something you end up not liking! A small and a large brush pen is provided for you to take away, along with your work pack and templates, to practise more brush pen calligraphy in your own time. A hot drink and something yummy are also included in the ticket price.
There is no requirement to have neat handwriting or previous art experience. With templates to trace over, this is a fun and relaxing workshop.
I have been practising calligraphy for many years, starting with learning the traditional scripts (copperplate, italic and foundational hand) at night school and learning from some of the UK’s leading traditional calligraphers. After discovering modern calligraphy, I have enjoyed manipulating the traditional letter shapes into modern styles. This is what gives my modern calligraphy lettering its beauty and elegance.
