Come and join Amy at the beautiful Grade II Listed Field Place Manor House situated in Worthing 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.
If you have always wanted to try modern calligraphy but you’re concerned you don’t have nice handwriting or you can’t draw, don’t worry, that really doesn’t matter! We teach you the tricks to turn your hand to modern calligraphy whatever your skillset; and anyway, it’s the imperfections that make it human, and that is it’s appeal.
Our 2.5 hour dip pen workshop is specifically designed for beginners. Carefully structured, our lesson plan takes you through guided exercises, creating the letters of the alphabet and turning them into elegant words. Finally, you’ll work onto our lovely card templates, designed by Kirsten Burke, the UK’s leading calligrapher.
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!
