About the Event

There’s something incredibly luxurious about spending a whole day doing something relaxing and enjoyable, that’s just for you. Our Full Day Brush Workshop gives you a real in-depth look at how to create modern brush calligraphy, and gives you the perfect foundation to begin your brush lettering journey. 

Being all about energy and flow, brush lettering allows you more freedom than a nib. Think of it as the free-spirited rebel of the calligraphy gang! Come and join The Modern Calligraphy Co. and explore the wide range of different brush tools available. Experiment, play and learn how to use them to achieve gorgeous results. 

With expert instruction from your tutor you’ll work your way through guided exercises. You’ll begin by combining strokes to form letters and words, then move on to comparing different alphabets so that you can begin to develop your own styles. Work on templates created by our Master Calligrapher Kirsten Burke, and enjoy discovering the key aspects to making striking brush lettering. Your tutor will give demonstrations for the whole group, as well as providing one-to-one support. All your worksheets and templates are yours to keep so you can work through them again and again. 

Our workshops are carefully structured, but still fun and informal. As well a brush pens, you’ll try your hand at writing with a paintbrush and a waterbrush. We’ll show you different ways to blend colours, how to work with metallics and to add other effects to your brush calligraphy. 

After this full day, you will have learnt all the basics to be able to start creating your own greeting cards, party invitations and artworks for your home and to give as gifts. All the materials you’ll need are provided, as well as refreshments and a delicious lunch. If you have any particular dietary requirements then please let us know.

We have a shop at our studio, stocking all of our favourite calligraphy supplies, including the items you will have used during your workshop, so that you can buy your favourites and continue your calligraphy journey at home!
