Modern Calligraphy Class – Birmingham Pen Museum

On this course you will get hands on with the new fun, quicker way to learn calligraphy using fine point nib.

In the morning, we will get used to the script and practice and in the afternoon, I will show you design layout and all you will need to be happily confident that you can use this new-found skill regularly after leaving the class on all those special things you are creating.

I will also show you the difference different inks , nibs and papers make to your work and introduce you to ‘Coliro’ which is a fabulous new metallic product that makes your work look a million dollars!

Nib holders, nibs, paper, various inks, practice lines and paper/ card to complete cards will all be provided. Additional materials to set you up outside of the class will also be available to purchase from Jane and the Pen Museum shop. The workshop is suitable for beginners and the more experienced calligrapher and is also ideal for lefthanders. If you attended a previous class, we would begin to fine tune the skills learnt already.

Lunch is not provided; however, you may bring some lunch if you wish.
Museum admission not included.
