We will start the day course by going over the practical uses of calligraphy and where we can find inspiration, followed by what constitutes good lettering. We will then move onto the tools, going over the proper way of holding a brush pen and explore the associated arm movements. We look at letter formation and practise writing common letter combos, before moving onto uppercase letters.
There will be a fun exercise of trying out a collection of various brush pens, and to finalise the day, you will come up with words, phrases or sentences to write in your newly found calligraphy style. We will create a beautiful watercolour background and touch on watercolour lettering after a demonstration. You will then create your own backgrounds with the watercolour brush pens before writing on cards to take away with you.
