This one day workshop will introduce to you the world of hand lettering and calligraphy. You will learn the difference between calligraphy, lettering and typography through a series of exercises and demonstrations. We’ll explore experimental styles and other techniques, encouraging you to find your own unique style using tools such as a broad nib pen, flexible pen, ruling pen, balsa and flat brush. Along the way you will learn about composition, hierarchy, contrast, layout and proportions so you will leave the course with the skills to start creating your own unique lettering pieces. This workshop suits beginners and people who have some experience in calligraphy and hand-lettering in the past.

Participants will take home a brush pen used on the day along with worksheets developed to help you further your practice at home. Paper is supplied for you on the day but you are welcome to bring a sketchbook or any work you have done that would like to discuss.

What to bring:
Please bring some graphite pencils, a ruler, rubber, pens and other tools you would normally draw with. Also bring along a word or phrase you would like to letter. We may be getting a little messy with ink, so dress with this in mind!
