Whether you're a card maker, a type-lover or you just want to learn a new creative skill, our Beginners Calligraphy workshop is the perfect thing. Come and learn about the correct tools, brushes and inks and leave being able to create beautiful compositions with hand-made letters. This course focuses on calligraphy with a brush.

What is the difference between calligraphy vs lettering vs typography? Find out, and learn about the 'big three universes' of calligraphy - the flat pen, the brush, and the quill pen.

Tutor Pedro will cover the anatomy of letters, loads of exercises and practice, composition, examples of calligraphy artists, materials and tools.

Although the course covers theory, it is a highly practical class, especially from the second night onward. You will learn how to write the basic alphabet and have a small amount of homework.

Expected learning outcomes:
- Basic knowledge of calligraphy using a brush
- Ability to DIY items such as postcards, handmade posters, t-shirt prints etc
- Knowledge of basic tools
- Improved 'eye' for appreciating calligraphy
- Capacity to design beautiful compositions with hand-made letters

Who should attend: Graphic designers, tattooists, architects, typography/letter lovers and those interested in exploring a new art form.

The course fee includes materials.
