About the Event

We're thrilled to offer a 10-week watercolour calligraphy in-person course, for beginners, at our Birdham Studio.

Beginning on 16th September until 25th November. There will be no session on Friday 28th October due to Half Term.

Tutor: Maisie Minnett

Creating watercolour calligraphy is easier than you might think, and we're excited to introduce you to the multiple ways to incorporate colour into your brush lettering. Come and join us and discover degrees of transparency, ombre effects and building up the depth of colour within your calligraphy, all using the humble paintbrush!

Not only does working with a brush open up unlimited colour options, but it also means that you're able to write onto all kinds of surfaces, from walls to wine glasses! The true freedom of brush calligraphy is that you can work at any size, on pretty much any surface.

You’ll be taught how to control the brush in simple steps so that we can build your confidence by gradually adding to your understanding of the techniques which make brush calligraphy so beautiful. We will show you how to blend colours, create ombré effects, and work with washes to create beautiful lettered artworks.

Week 1 The Foundations of Brush Calligraphy and controlling the brush. An introduction to creating letters with a water brush and paintbrush. How hard to press and where to change the pressure.

Week 2 Understanding alphabets and how to alter the style of your lettering.

Week 3 Mixing your colours, colour terms, experiments and using colour effectively.

Week 4 Using colour theory to create lettering compositions.

Week 5 Creative background washes, water control and exploring different effects.

Week 6 Combining calligraphy layouts with colour washes.

Week 7 Create beautiful loose watercolour florals to decorate your work.

Week 8 Combining calligraphy and Illustration. Creating borders and decorations.

Week 9 Constructing a Wreath and composing a finished piece, sketches and stages of a design.

Week 10 Completing the final piece incorporating a wash, wreath, border or another decorative element. Personalised guidance with composition and colour choices.
