ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:

This BRAND NEW Calligraphy Tasting Workshop will be suitable for you if you are:

  • Interested in learning calligraphy but not sure where to start?
  • Interested in several calligraphy scripts but not sure which script to start with?
  • Already have some writing tools at home but not sure if they are suitable for calligraphy writing?
  • Curious to try your hands on dip pen calligraphy but could not find time to learn?

In this 2.5 hours workshop, I will demonstrate and talk about different calligraphy scripts (including pointed nib and broad nib calligraphy), and some basic writing tools for beginners. I will also prepare samples of each script for you to try writing in class so that you can get a basic understanding of all the scripts, and maybe perhaps find out which one is your favourite script to start with.

The following scripts will be covered:

  • Copperplate (using a pointed nib)
  • Italic (using a broad nib)
  • Gothic (using a broad nib)
  • Modern Calligraphy (using a pointed nib and brush pen)

This workshop is suitable for those with no experience as well as those who have done one script before but want to try out different scripts.


MATERIALS:

All materials will be supplied for you to use in class, this includes both oblique and straight penholders, nibs (pointed and broad nibs), inks and papers.
