Calligraphy Workshop Description: Establish good working habits and learn the technique of writing with a calligraphy felt tip or dip pen. As you learn how to hold and handle the writing tools; we will practice drawing the characters (i.e. Copperplate Script) using hand lettered guides. As you get comfortable; we will create words and sentences using good spacing as I demonstrate the various styles of faux and flourishing. I will introduce technique and beneficial strategies to build a successful design composition. Using templates, you will create our own unique hand lettering style with color and flourishes. Workshops include pens, colors, tools, material and templates.
I will provide individual attention and guidance. Everyone will be able to create their own original artwork and will produce a finished composition, worthy of framing. All skill levels & left-handed friends are welcome. No experience necessary, just a desire to learn. Please arrive 15 minutes ahead. I will post new workshops soon! - Instructor, Patty Berns
