Sat 16th February 2019: Julie Williams

Modern Calligraphy – Julie Williams

This fun and intensive workshop will introduce yo uto the delights of modern calligraphy. A more relaxed calligraphic approach than that of formal pointed pen styles.

Beginners will learn all the tips and tricks of how to use a pointed dip nib with ink. A modern calligraphic script style will also be explored, along with variations from which you could  develop your very own style – perfect for personalising cards, tags and labels and for gift giving!

Several small projects will be completed on the day.

This workshop is also suitable for students with some experience with the pointed pen who want to learn a more casual style.

Beginners kits are available for $30. Please advise at time of booking if you would like to purchase.
