More information on the Workshop
During this workshop you will learn how to develop your own style of calligraphy. The class is suitable for those who have dabbled in calligraphy and would like to develop their skill. If you've done one of my previous classes or practiced yourself, this could be the next step. We will look at various letterforms, ways of connecting letters and various flourishing ideas. I'll also be focusing on teaching with finite gold ink - an amazing gold ink which I use for all my wedding work. I'll show how effective this can be to use especially for writing tags and cards for Christmas. The class will include an introduction, a guidance through some worksheets and time to write on cards and tags. The class will be 2 hours long taught by calligrapher Jess (Boards By Jess) and workshop price includes the cost of your own kit.
Excitingly, there will also be an opportunity to shop cards, calligraphy inks and card stock to make more gift tags or place names after the workshop. Cash and card is accepted.
