About the Event
Tutor: Lucia Leyfield
Join us and get into the festive spirit with this sparkling Christmas calligraphy workshop. Learn to use a nib to create beautiful gift wrap, tags, and Christmas cards - with a focus on fabulous metallics! This workshop is suitable for beginners.
This time of year can be so hectic, so why not come along and spend a few relaxed hours with us and enjoy learning a new skill at the same time! The workshop will begin with a demonstration, followed by a step by step tutorial on how to use a pointed nib to create beautiful modern calligraphy. You'll be guided step-by-step through the creation of letterforms and your tutor will be on hand to answer questions and help you along the way. You will explore how to add metallics and embellishments to your creations to really elevate them and add that Christmas wow factor!
All your templates, which are original Kirsten Burke designs, will be yours to keep, as well as your worksheets so you can continue your lettering journey from home. Everything you need to complete the workshop will be provided so you can just relax and enjoy!
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, and learn all the basics of creating your own gorgeous calligraphy. 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, so you can relax and enjoy!
