Traditional Calligraphy

Short Workshops


Traditional Calligraphy Intro - Part 1 (Beginners)

This is a 3 hour ‘crash course’ aimed at anyone wanting to learn the absolute basics of traditional calligraphy without committing to a full course. Suitable for complete beginners, or anyone who’s tried calligraphy on their own and needs a little more help. This workshop will be fun and is meant to demystify calligraphy and give you a little taste of what it’s all about without leaving you feeling overwhelmed.. it’s NOT going to be a serious workshop, and you’re not going to leave as a Calligraphy Master! 😃

We’ll cover the following: The correct way to hold your calligraphy pen, basic lowercase Italic alphabet, how to select and purchase a pen, how to care for your calligraphy pen.

We’ll be using cheapie koki’s during the workshop, but there will be ‘fancy’ Lamy and Kaweco pens for sale as well as inks and paper 😝 (especially for all the pen addicts)
