Chichester: Beginners Modern Calligraphy Brush Workshop - Thursday 17th October 2019 - Evening
Time & Location
About the Event
Tutor: Maisie Minett
At The Modern Calligraphy Co. we want you to have a great time and feel relaxed, so you can get your best results. During this 2.5 hour workshop for beginners, your tutor will give demonstrations for the whole class, as well as providing one-on-one support and troubleshooting any individual difficulties you come across.
As brush pens come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, this class gives you the opportunity to try out lots of different types and discover the one that is just right for you.
Modern calligraphy is about lettering that has energy and flow and brush lettering tools allow you to be the most creative. Just like with a pointed nib, it involves the pressure and release of the brush to get the gorgeous contrast of thick and thin lines.
Our workshops are carefully structured, building up your knowledge step by step. Our worksheets teach you how to combine strokes to form letters, then turn them into words and phrases. You’ll spend time working on beautiful brush lettering templates created by our Master Calligrapher Kirsten Burke, and enjoy getting to grips with techniques like ‘blending’ and ‘bounce’.
All the worksheets and templates from the class are yours to keep, so you can work through them again and again. Before you know it you'll be creating greeting cards, party invitations and artworks for your home and to give as gifts.
All the materials you’ll need are provided, and refreshments will be available throughout.
We have a small shop at our studio, stocking some of our favourite calligraphy supplies, including the items you will have used during your workshop, so that you can continue your calligraphy journey at home!
