A fun and relaxed modern calligraphy class, suitable for absolute beginners
Manchester, Friday 11th October 2019
So you love all the gorgeous hand lettering on Instagram and Pinterest, but you have never held a calligraphy pen before. Maybe you had a calligraphy set for your birthday, or you'd just love to learn a new craft.
Calligraphy pens aren’t as mysterious as they seem – in fact, in this workshop I’ll talk you through everything you need to know to make magic come out of a calligraphy pen.We’ll start with assembling a pen and spooning up ink. We’ll make flowy, swirly shapes and then letters and words. I’ll show you how, with demonstrations at every stage of the process.
Best of all, you get to keep your modern calligraphy set at the end of the class! Included are your pen + nib, ink and worksheets.There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like.
Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) I will help you along the way!
The modern calligraphy workshop starts at 2:30pm and ends at 4:30pm. Our venue is Manchester Craft & Design Centre, which is just five minutes walk from Manchester’s main shopping areas of Market Street and the Arndale Centre, situated in the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter
The price includes calligraphy supplies to take home in your very own personalised gift bag / box - a calligraphy pen and nib, ink and worksheets
