Modern Calligraphy with Italic Capitals

  • Farm Studio 29 Viitasalo Road South Somersby, NSW, 2250 Australia (map)

Modern calligraphy is a very broad area and can leave the beginner or occasional calligrapher wondering where to start or how to expand your ideas. That new clean sheet of paper can be daunting.

This workshop will include basic lettering techniques of Italic capitals using a broad-edge nib and ink. Methods of starting a modern piece of calligraphy will be explored, as well as ways of making our mistakes work in our favour, helping you to discover your creative flow.

Designing a contemporary piece of calligraphic art can start in many ways. You need to let go of formal structures and let yourself discover your creative flow. There is always an opportunity to layer your work with mark making & mixed media. How to turn something unappealing into a work of art you can be proud of.

This workshop caters for beginners to intermediate calligraphers.

Cost: $100/pp, by Monday 20th November.
