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. These days people are more keen to learn Modern Calligraphy as it is slightly ‘cheating’ compared the intensity of the classic scripts. You will have seen ‘Modern Calligraphy’ script everywhere and it is great for beginners or people wanting to improve their style and flair. 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. She will go through letter construction and give you lots of tips and techniques needed to get your confidence up. In the afternoon depending on how you are progressing we can continue with practice and tips or venture onto design and layout for a simple card.
