About the Event
A 5-week course running from Thursday 28th September until Thursday 26th October

For those that know the basics of modern calligraphy and want to take their skills further.
Our 'Beyond Beginner' Course is for those of you that know the basics ( ie you've attended one workshop) and wish to develop your lettering to make stunning creative pieces of art.
You'll learn to fine-tune your compositions and balance your work and be guided through the design process. By the end of this course, you will be able to create a beautifully composed piece.
So if you're looking to elevate your calligraphy to the next level, this is definitely the course for you!
