It’s made me sad postponing my modern calligraphy workshops – but until we can all get out there and enjoy a real life calligraphy class, I have an online calligraphy workshop to tell you about instead!
It’s going to be a long spring… but to keep your mind and heart occupied, my online modern calligraphy workshop is FREE while we’re all stuck indoors and self-isolating.
We filmed these a few years ago – in my dining room with lovely Paul Kyte behind the camera and my cat under the table! Usually the course costs £60 – for the next 12 weeks or so, it’s yours for free.
I’m really proud of this online calligraphy course and I thought perhaps we could share it now, with you, to help you through the coronavirus pandemic.
There’s no catch; tutorials are free for everyone to view and learn from for the next 12 weeks. I really hope you love them!
There are 6 tutorials in total. They’ll take you from your very first dip of the pen into your ink pot, through to joining up letters and writing beautiful calligraphy quotes.
At a glance: see all of the online calligraphy tutorials in the series:
Tutorial 1 – lines & loops
Tutorial 2 – first letters
Tutorial 3 – lower case alphabets & first words
Tutorial 4 – the beautiful side of capital letters!
Tutorial 5 – curls, curves and common mistakes + the gallery
Tutorial 6 – brush lettering, working in colour + suppliers
Each has a video for you to play and worksheets for you to download and print at home.
Every workshop is listed in the menu at the top of the website, so you can find them easily.
And while we’re all in states of lockdown, self-isolating and feeling anxious and scared, I’d like to introduce you to calligraphy as a mindful activity: there’s something really calming about the nib’s dance across a page… do try it!
Stay safe and well, and look after the world and community around you.
