Beginners Italic – This script you may have learnt at school or always liked the look of it as it is a classic calligraphy script.
This class is perfect for complete beginners or if you want a brush up and move on. Pen holder, nib (YOU MUST STATE IF YOU ARE LEFT HANDED AS THE NIB IS DIFFERENT) practice sheets, and information sheets all provided in the course price
Jane Lappage has taught and done calligraphy for many years now and was classically trained to create Italic, Gothic, Uncial, Foundational, Copperplate and even Gold leaf. Brilliant for people needing to brush up on rusty skills and perfect for left and right handed people alike.
In the class Jane will show you how important different nibs, ink, paint and paper are to get you started and how to get the best results quickly.
