Christmas is the perfect time to learn calligraphy, so join our Master Calligrapher Claire Delfont at our covid secure venue and learn how to create beautiful lettering in this relaxed and informal class for beginners. You will learn to write with a pointed nib, inks, and metallic paints, we will show you how to add decorative touches and swirls.
Our 2.5 hour dip pen workshop is specifically designed for beginners. Carefully structured, our lesson plan takes you through guided exercises, creating the letters of the alphabet and turning them into elegant words. Finally, you’ll work on our lovely Christmas card templates.
We’ll build your confidence by gradually adding to your understanding of the techniques which make modern calligraphy so beautiful. By the end of the class you’ll have progressed from making basic strokes to being able to connect letterforms and create your own Festive words and phrases.
All your worksheets and templates are yours to keep, so you can continue to practice your calligraphy with them at home.
As well as guiding the whole class with demonstrations and instructions, your tutor will be there to provide you with one-on-one tuition and troubleshooting any issues you may come across.
Throughout the workshop, you’ll learn about letterforms, use metallics, and try some colour blending. With these techniques in your repertoire, you’ll soon be creating greeting cards, party invitations, and artworks for your home and loved ones!
All the materials you’ll need are provided, so you can relax and enjoy!
There is free parking available on site for this workshop.
