Beginners Modern Calligraphy
Mellor and Rose are back at Cedar Farm, running their popular Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop.
In these easy going sessions, you will start from the very beginning and cover all the fundamentals of this modern and versatile style of calligraphy, using a dip pen and a pot of ink.
In the 2 and a half hours you will learn the entire alphabet; upper and lower case alphabets then you’ll progress onto joining up those individual letters to create words and phrases – you will work on different papers to see how the ink reacts to glossier paper plus black ink on brown paper looks pretty lovely!
From here, you will delve into the layout elements of hand lettering – looking into varying ways to put your designs on paper (not only on a straight line!) along with the use of ornaments to shape our designs and bring some pop!
