Designed for complete beginners, or those wanting to refresh their skills, this intensive course is a jam-packed day of creativity in the stylish surroundings of studio/shop on Amwell Street. The day will be relaxed and fun, focused on learning an amazing life skill in great company, and accompanied by delicious edibles.
WHAT IS INCLUDED:
- We start from the beginning, learning about nibs, inks and different paper types, then put this to use as you learn modern calligraphy, starting with basic exercises before moving on to letter forms and joining them together to make words. There will be plenty of time to practice, gain confidence and see improvement, with lots of one-to-one time with Lucy. You'll be taught to develop your own unique modern calligraphy style by understanding how to use your creativity to treat modern calligraphy in a very different way to your handwriting (so don't worry if your handwriting is a modern day scrawl!) You'll also be introduced to metallic ink.
- You'll work on a written quote or phrase, which will allow you to put all of your skills acquired throughout the day to the test. We hope that the day will inspire you and leave you brimming with ideas as to how you can put your new skills into practice.
- We provide tea and coffee through the day and for lunch you are very welcome to explore Exmouth Market or Islington where there are some really lovely places to eat. We are happy to provide directions and recommendations.
- As always, all your materials will be provided for you to keep and take home, as well as your final framed piece you will have worked on towards the end of the day.
We look forward to welcoming you!
