About the Event
Discover how to create calligraphy using paints and brushes. Once you have been familiarised with the basic strokes and letterforms, which involve understanding the pressure and angle required to create thin upstrokes and thick downstrokes, you will be guided through forming the letters of the alphabet and then move on to words.
Once you've grasped the fundamentals, start exploring different calligraphy styles and lettering variations to allow you to personalize your work and develop your unique artistic voice. You can experiment with various flourishes, ligatures, and decorative elements to add flair to your lettering.
Brush pen calligraphy has a range of applications, from creating beautiful handwritten quotes and invitations to designing custom artwork and logos. You can also incorporate calligraphy into crafts, journaling, and other creative projects. Explore different avenues to express your creativity and find joy in applying your calligraphy skills.
Like any skill, brush pen calligraphy requires practice to develop muscle memory. Regular practice helps you refine your technique, improve your control over the brush pen, and enhance the consistency of your letterforms. Set aside dedicated practice sessions to build your skills.
Remember, learning calligraphy is a journey that allows you to develop a unique artistic expression. Enjoy the process, embrace mistakes as learning opportunities, and celebrate your progress along the way.
We will bring everything you need and you will leave with new skills and a personalised artwork to frame or give as a gift.
