About the Event

10-week modern intermediate calligraphy course.

This 10-week course will run every Thursday morning (10.00 am-12.30 pm) from September 17th - 26th November 2020 with a half term break on 29th October. 

Our 'Beyond Beginner' course is perfect for calligraphy enthusiasts who want to take their lettering skills beyond the basics. It's aimed at those with some calligraphy experience already.

The course is divided into two halves. The first 5 weeks show you how to exaggerate basic letter shapes, how to stretch, and bounce them. You will discover the benefits of using a light pad to build up your design  & how to compose and balance your work. Learn to hone your calligraphic style and give it an elegant twist with targeted exercises. In this part of the course, you will be guided through the design process so that by the 5th session you will have created a finished piece.

The second part of the course focuses on different products that add interest to your calligraphy. Theory and practical methods that we teach you will help you understand how to develop your alphabet, how and when to connect and space your lettering, and how to combine styles.  You will learn how to mix colours and work with different inks, paints, masking fluid, washes, and metallics. Your second art composition will be created using these materials.

So if you're looking to elevate your calligraphy to the next level, this is definitely the course for you!
