Calligraphy for all Levels

This course, across 5 days, will introduce beginners to the art of writing beautifully – covering the basics of using a broad-edge pen, using colour, principles of layout and design and also how to do backgrounds.  Those with previous experience may concentrate on learning a new script, refining or modifying one they’ve learned before or using applied techniques such as embossing, gilding and decorated letters, book binding, etc. 

Everyone can enjoy the therapeutic qualities of writing, and producing highly personalised gifts and pieces of work, whether cards, folded boxes, little books, scrolls or hangings.

There will be some themed content to join in on, if wished – contact the tutor for details.
