Brush lettering is the playful, super trendy little sister of modern calligraphy – and I’ll be teaching a brush pen calligraphy workshop in Cheshire on the afternoon of Saturday 2nd November. Come and join me!
The brush pen calligraphy workshop is for absolute beginners – so if you want to get started with a really fun and creative hobby, it’s perfect!
We’ll look at how brush pen lettering works; how to make beautiful letters without damaging the fragile tips of the calligraphy brush pens, and learn a pretty alphabet. Plus, we’ll play with colours – writing in sunrise and sunset colours to produce pretty quotes and wall hangings.
The workshop will be relaxed and friendly – it’s a cosy, creative space at The Little Paper Shop and I love teaching there!
We begin with exploring modern calligraphy pens: how do they work? How do you create lovely flowing thick and thin strokes to form letters? We’ll write swirls and shapes, then practice a modern calligraphy alphabet.
By the end of the morning you’ll have learned everything you need to know about modern calligraphy to practice and perfect your art at home! You’ll also have a framed quote of your very own to take home and display – and to keep as a reminder of that very first day you tried modern calligraphy!
The modern calligraphy workshop is on the 2nd of November from 10am until 12:30. You can book your places here!
