Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop (St Annes)

September 27 at 10:30 am till 1:00 pm

Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop with Mellor & Rose

Join us on our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop at Vintage Sewing Bunny in St Annes (near Blackpool) on Sunday September 27th from 10:30am till 1pm.

We will be starting our 2 and a half hour workshop from the very beginning – covering the core fundamentals of calligraphy and hand lettering; how to hold the pen, pressure strokes, angle of the nib, when to dip etc.
This Beginners workshop is suitable for absolute beginners – no experience needed.

After covering the upper and lower alphabet, we delve into joining up those individual letters – looking at the shapes of letters as a whole, working on a curve and bouncing those letters. Our design templates incorporate both script and sans serif calligraphy styles which is then complimented by decorative ornaments to frame the design.

What’s included?
£48 // 2 and a half hours // Includes Starter Kit: dip pen, nib, entire upper and lower case alphabet, joining up the letters, practice sheets, design and layout sheets (wall art), ornaments plus stationery items to letter up // 2 workshop tutors // Refreshments.

New changes to our workshops
Reduced workshop sizes, distanced seating, sanitiser provided, wipe down surfaces cleaned before arrival, disposable cups for refreshments. Please wear a face covering of some sort.
