About the Event
Calligrapher: Katie Thornton
Learn the fundamentals of modern calligraphy in our engaging and enjoyable evening workshop.
Join Katie at Ruskin Glass Centre for a relaxing evening learning how to create beautiful lettering in this relaxed and informal workshop. Modern Calligraphy is dynamic and has energy so you can relax and have fun creating your own style.
Do not be put off if you think you do not have nice handwriting or that you cannot draw as that really doesn't matter. We will teach you the tricks to turn your hand to modern calligraphy whatever your skillset.
Our 2.5-hour dip pen workshop is specifically designed for beginners. 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 letter forms to create your own words and phrases. With demonstrations and instructions, your tutor will be there to provide one-on-one tuition.
You will use metallics and also try some colour blending and with these techniques in your repertoire, you will soon be creating bespoke greeting cards, invitations and maybe even some beautiful artwork to dress your home or gift to a loved one.
Katie became hooked on calligraphy after completing her first online class in 2020. Discovering how calming and mindful calligraphy is, Katie loves being able to personalise just about anything. As well as freelancing for us throughout the year at some of our Corporate Events, Katie is also our West Midlands Ambassador teaching brush and nib calligraphy to beginners.
