Intermediate Modern Calligraphy Workshop
September 30 at 6:30 pm till 9:00 pm£55
Hello Cedar Farm!
Beverley, Polly and Lucy Mellor from Mellor & Rose are delighted to welcome you back to their Intermediate Modern Calligraphy Workshop at Cedar Farm on Thursday September 30th from 6:30pm til 9pm. All spaces and venues will be COVID secure – all surfaces wiped down before and after the Workshop with sanitiser provided. We will continue to keep to a max. of 6 persons per Workshops (this means a lot of one-to-one tuition… there’s an upside!)
Here’s what we’ll be getting up to
We’ll start by recapping from our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop, looking at the Alphabet both Upper and Lower Alphabets. We’ll also recap the technique – how to hold the pen, pressure strokes, rhythm. From here, we’ll dive into brand new designs!
Take some time away from our screens and pick up a pen – possibly a new pen, a pen we haven’t held before – a dip pen! In our workshops, we use a metallic nib and to get the desired effect of lovely calligraphy, we simply dip the nib into a pot of ink – a method rather therapeutic in itself. Once we have the hang of the core technique – we work through the individual letters of the alphabet and joining of the words to then spacing and layout, plus a couple of ornaments here and there!
New style of Alphabet, recap from our Beginners Workshop, how to layout a Greetings Card, Stationery Items.
