Modern Calligraphy 4 week course with Rosie
Learn Modern Calligraphy skills with us on a 4 week course in the Crafty Sew & So Studio!
Over the course of 4 week you will learn how to write - beautifully!
This course is perfect for total beginners. You will learn how to write in the modern calligraphy style, develop your own style and use lots of different mediums and surfaces to practice your skills.
Remember at school when we learnt how to write in straight lines with each letter being the same size? We’re going to break the rules and do the complete opposite!
Once we’ve got to grips with the letters and words we can start being really creative and thinking about what we’ll use them for. You will learn how to write beautiful quotes which you can apply to greetings cards, personalised decorations, small signs - to add a professional yet personal touch. Using different mediums, including pencils, brush pens, ink, chalk pens. You will be able to apply these skills to create something unique for yourself or as a gift.
The course includes all your materials and teaching in a small group with an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly tutor.
