About the Event

As a professional calligrapher doing live event work, you need to be able to navigate, interpret and implement a specific clients brief.

The Level 2 Masterclass in brush calligraphy is aimed at professional calligraphers who wish to be trained to do event work. Having completed the class, the opportunity to work for the broadest range of clients in this highly competitive field is opened up.

This workshop will look at how to vary your style to meet your clients brief and deliver ‘product perfect’ calligraphy with confidence at high profile, high volume, high pressure events. We will work with a range of tools and materials, including working through some dynamic techniques like embossing and using heat guns, and materials and you will receive one to one feedback and trouble shooting. If you are a self taught modern calligrapher, this course will give you the opportunity to discuss and review your working methods and check that you are working in the most efficient way. We will review the rules that you need to master, if you are going to succeed in this competitive environment.

Lastly, we’ll look at how to use photography on location to wow your clients and impress your followers, and the do’s and don’ts of social media.

On this course, we will be looking to identify calligraphers with the ability to join the Kirsten Burke team as a freelance associate calligrapher. As such you will be considered for opportunities at prestigious live events for world-renowned luxury brands. You will need to prove your competency and eligibility for a place, by showing some recent examples of your work.

A delicious buffet lunch is provided, with drinks and refreshments available throughout the session. If you have any particular dietary requirement, please let us know.
