Description

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. For centuries, it has been written with a quill dipped into ink, and not much has changed. The same tools that were used then to write historical scrolls are now used to create a mix of traditional (Copperplate, Spencerian, Italian Hand, etc ) and chic modern calligraphy.  This class is structured around learning the basic traditional letterforms before tweaking them to create a modern take on calligraphy. 

Throughout this 3 hour introductory hands-on course, you will be personally assisted with any questions you may have as Joanna shares her tips and lessons learnt from her own calligraphy journey.  You will be walked through the basics, an introduction to the materials and tools, learning how to load the nib with inks, how much ink to load, how to hold a pen and proper posture and of course, learning how to write the actual letters.

Perfect for both the beginner and hobbyist, learn traditional pointed pen calligraphy with a modern twist! With lots of hands on practice, you’ll find that calligraphy is not only beautiful to look at, it is also very therapeutic, an addictive!

No prior experience needed.

Venue excellent. Presenter very organised, knowledgeable and likeable. Pace was set at a good rhythm. Whole group standing every 20mins would be an improvement since sitting still for 3hrs is not the healthiest! Perhaps incorporate big, rounded arm movements that mimic the shapes of some of the embellishments? Also, leaving with a phrase or a motto that we have formed ourselves would bring a sense of accomplishment and achievement. I found the second (modern) script distracting. I think having the two scripts on separate lines, allowing participants to choose which script to concentrate on during the session, while also offering the second script as practise at home, would improve the session and provide a sense of overall roundedness. Wishing the providers all the best with their work! Well done!

The class was well-paced and taught us the basics. The oblique pen, which at first glance is quite strange, is surprisingly easy to get used to. Overall I really enjoyed the class and look forward to practicing.
