Join us and learn how to write in this lovely (and versatile) lettering style. Wedding’s today are becoming much more personalised to the bride and groom - adding your very own calligraphy will make your stationery truly yours. Not only does Modern Calligraphy look rather gorgeous on your Wedding stationery, it’s also great fun to do! Whether you love all things stationery, a bride-to-be or just need a little break from all the tech that surrounds us - Modern Calligraphy is relaxing to learn and gives us a chance to focus on creating some lovely lettering.
We'll begin the 3 hour workshop with our usual introduction to Calligraphy similar to our Beginners workshop and whilst we work through the upper and lower alphabets and as our confidence grows we'll start to look at Wedding themed designs and pieces. We'll ensure plenty of one to one time as with anything new, a skill can't be fully mastered in an afternoon, but you'll have learnt all solid technique in the workshop and with practice here and there plus putting your own spin on your designs you'll be producing lovely lettering for any occasion.
By the end of the Wedding workshop; we'll have covered all the fundamentals of this modern lettering style with a dip pen for you to then letter up your very own stationery pieces using the techniques we've covered and not forgetting perhaps one of the most important aspects of lettering; spacing and layout.
As the first section of the session is a Beginners workshop - no previous experience with lettering is needed as we'll be starting from the very beginning to get our eye in and if you've been to one of our Beginners workshops we'll be getting back into the swing of things plus an alternative alphabet for you.
Our usual calligraphy Starter Kit of dip pen, nib, upper and lower alphabet, practice design layout sheets is included to work our lettering to varying scales and not only only a straight line to bring in more design elements!
