About the Event

Tutor: Maisie Minett 

Come and join The Modern Calligraphy Co. and learn how to create beautiful lettering in this relaxed and informal class. Modern calligraphy is about lettering that is dynamic and has energy, so rather than worrying about getting every letter identical, you can relax and have fun with it. Creating your own style and enjoying the process is what it’s all about.

There are lots of different ways of creating beautiful modern calligraphy, and sometimes knowing where to start can be tricky! This full day taster workshop will give you a chance to try your hand at both pointed nib and brush using a range of types and colours so you can see which you enjoy the most! 

You will be creating letter-forms, using colour, metallics, and designing layouts. You will have a go at using both dip pen and brush pens, and exploring the various effects that can be achieved with each. You will work on beautiful templates and create finished pieces that you could frame and keep for yourself or give as a charming personal gift! 

All your worksheets and templates are yours to keep, so you can continue to practice your calligraphy with them at home. 

As well as guiding the whole class with demonstrations and instructions, your tutor will be there to provide you with one-on-one tuition and troubleshooting any issues you may come across.

Throughout the workshop you’ll learn about letterforms, use metallics, and try some colour blending. With these techniques in your repertoire, you'll soon be creating greeting cards, party invitations and artworks for your home and loved ones!

 All the materials you’ll need are provided, and refreshments will be available throughout as well as a delicious buffet lunch which will include a selection of hot quiches, vegetable tarts, cold meats, pate, cheese board, salads, and fresh breads! If you have any particular dietary requirements then please let us know.   

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!
