About the Event

Looking to not only learn modern calligraphy but stick to it?

Learning a new skill is tricky, particularly if you've never tried anything creative before and feel slightly outside of your comfort zone. My Modern Calligraphy Fundamentals Course teaches everything you need to know to get you started with modern calligraphy. This course will cover all of the essentials of modern calligraphy including basic strokes, the calligraphy alphabet (including tricky letters), letter connections and more.

Not only will you be learning calligraphy, you will be putting it to use right away in the form of weekly homework. This is to help you to learn through application and to help form the habit of creating calligraphy on a more regular basis.

The skills and projects you will learn not only be for the sake of the course but will be transferable for special events in the future too such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and more!

The learning will take place across four weeks so that you can apply your learning and get feedback along the way from a professional calligrapher.

This course has limited spaces and is on a first come, first served basis, so if you're interested in joining don't delay!

This course will cover:

  • Calligraphy tools
  • How to hold your brush pen
  • Basic calligraphy strokes
  • Lowercase alphabet
  • Uppercase alphabet
  • Tricky letters
  • Connecting letters
  • Creating common phrases
  • Doodles for filling white space
  • Creating greeting cards
  • Creating gift tags
  • Creating custom gift wrap
  • Block calligraphy
  • Envelope addressing

Where will this course be held?

This is an online course taught via four x 1 hour long Zoom workshops taking place on Tuesday evenings (7-8pm GMT), starting 7th June and finishing 28th June 2022.

Students on this course will also receive an invitation to an exclusive Facebook group where they can ask any questions related to content on the course and also receive personalised feedback from a professional calligrapher.
