The fun-loving style of modern lettering has exploded into our lives, inspiring everyone to pick up a pen or a brush. Gone are the intimidating restrictions of formal calligraphy! This is about fun, playfulness, being expressive and embracing the human qualities of the hand-written.
Over the duration of the course, we will take a detailed look at the rules that govern traditional calligraphy, and why and when to break them! Experiment with pointed nibs, brushes & lots of other weird and wonderful calligraphy tools under the expert instruction of Master calligrapher Kirsten Burke. Develop your calligraphy skills, whatever your level. By deconstructing alphabets you will learn how to create your own unique style and adapt it whenever the mood takes you. You will be taught how to use a variety of different products including masking fluid, washes, foils and neons, to bring your calligraphy to life! You will learn to create all kinds of calligraphic pieces, using different techniques. So let’s break some rules, have some fun, and turn lettering into art.
