Modern Calligraphy – Strelley Hall

17th August 2019 – Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy Course
10:00am to 4:30pm

Modern calligraphy is a fresh, new style that brings a flexibility and uniqueness that is both appealing and accessible. Whereas the more traditional ‘Roundhand’ style dictates form and function, modern calligraphy lends itself to a more fluid, closer-to-your-handwriting approach.

The workshops are light-hearted, fun and aimed to give a taster of the basic skills needed to produce this very popular beautiful script. Ideal for all those personal touches to your crafted cards or for generating your own unique designs.

Learn about the history of calligraphy and how to correctly hold and generate the strokes needed to create this lovely script.
Finish the workshop by producing a final piece of your choice, demonstrating all that has been learned during the session.

Everything is provided for the class including a basic pen nib holder and nib, practice lines, letters and paper (all yours to keep) along with Jane’s years of knowledge and information on this historic skill. Many other products for excelling at this art will be available to buy on the day.

FOOD: Hot and cold refreshments will be provided throughout the workshop. Alternatively, the shop is situated next to the wonderful Mulberry Tree Cafe where you can purchase delicious food and refreshments at reasonable prices.

The course will cost £30.00 to include all materials, use of tools and teas / coffees throughout the day.

    The course was excellent. I thought a day course would be too much but it was perfect as it gave me a chance to learn, practice and create. It has really boosted my confidence and I am looking forward to practising more.

    Brilliant day. Whole day only begins to give me basic skills. Good background to nibs, rules, etc. Really helps to understand.

    I’ve had a lovely day – met some great fellow students – but most of all, I’ve learnt so much from you, Jane. All I need to do now is – practise, practise and more practise!! I’d love to come back some time and continue my Modern Calligraphy journey! It was also great to try the paint.- something completely new. Thank you.

    Enjoyed the workshop; Jane gave clear instructions on how to begin writing the letters. Offered different materials to try and helped when not sure how to get the letters right. Thank you.
