Pop the kettle on or get yourself a glass of wine and a biscuit or a sneaky bit of cake and join me for an online modern calligraphy workshop using a pointed pen and nib. All you need is a computer or an iPad, a table and leave the rest to me.
I will send you everything you will need to start your calligraphy journey from your kitchen, bedroom, study or wherever you can find a corner for a couple of hours. Remember this is your time, your space and your opportunity to learn something completely new.
Presented via Zoom, I will start by showing you how to prepare and use your nib and we will talk through all the information you need to get pen to paper. Using warm up exercises to start with and to get the ink flowing out of your nib, we will then move onto practicing and learning the alphabet letterforms, finally writing on some lovely templates.
Suitable for complete beginners this workshop will be light hearted and fun with lots of tips and tricks along the way. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and enjoy the company of other lovely students.
Included in your kit box you will receive a universal penholder, 2 calligraphy nibs (suitable for beginners) popped in a storage tin, calligraphy ink, and a lovely shimmery paint with a paintbrush to apply to your nib together lots of worksheets and templates.
Your kit will be posted out to you in plenty of time for the workshop and the Zoom link will be emailed out to you when we confirm your booking.
In preparation for the workshop you will need a pot of water and some kitchen towel and a flat surface to work on.
