Description

Learn how to write beautifully using ink and nib, unlock your creativity and explore how to put a modern twist on the classic art form of calligraphy in your own unique style. This class is designed for complete beginners. You'll start by working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes, and then move on to letter forms. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help.

There is nothing you need to bring. The class includes our essential kit of calligraphy materials to use in class and take away with you.


ABOUT PIXIEDUST CALLIGRAPHY

It all started with my own wedding. Wanted to capture all the wonderful bits and pieces of my husband and my relationship in my paper goods, hence, started my journey in calligraphy.

Though at the end I don’t have enough time to make this happen, I realized how much I would love to work with others to bring the joy and give the bride a hand. (We all know there is a lot of work to plan a wedding, I have been there.)

For weddings, I love doing place cards and addressing envelopes currently obsessed with wax sealing. Besides weddings, I also love seeing my artwork for newborns, anniversary, birthday ideas, special events and things-to-do for hen’s party.

Charlotte delivered fundamentals of Calligraphy in a fun, sociable and informative class. It was a great way to spend a Sunday - came away with a new creative outlet.

Pros: - Enjoyed the class - good start for beginners as we were provided with basic materials. Cons: - Teacher was late so she was in a rush to set up (but I understand that these things happen!) - Took about 10 minutes going around introducing ourselves which I thought was pretty unnecessary and a waste of time instead of getting into the hands on stuff. - Would have liked some more practice pages e.g. Lined pages to take home to practice strokes/letters (instead of just the blank pad of paper)
