About the Event
Tutor: Vicky Daws
If you have often thought about trying your hand at calligraphy, why not join Vicky at the Sew Lovely studio in Derby and learn how to create beautiful lettering in this relaxed and informal workshop.
Creating your own style and enjoying the process is what Modern Calligraphy is all about. We will teach you the tricks to turn your hand to modern calligraphy whatever your skillset and will guide you step-by-step through our carefully structured lesson plan which will take you through guided exercises, creating the letters of the alphabet and turning them into elegant words. Finally, you’ll work onto our lovely card templates, designed by Kirsten Burke, the UK’s leading calligrapher.
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 and create your own calligraphic words and phrases.
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.
Refreshments will be supplied on arrival.
