Modern Calligraphy Workshop - The White Horse Brancaster Staithe (4 - 6 / 6:30 - 8:30pm)

  • The White Horse Brancaster Staithe, PE31 8BY United Kingdom (map)

Join lettering artist and stationery designer Kirstie Bird for an introductory class to the art of Modern Calligraphy. The class includes an essential kit of calligraphy materials to use in class and take away with you.

This is a beginners' workshop, which will start with an introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge. Kirstie will then guide guests through some practice exercises, moving on to letterforms, and by the end of the session everyone will be able to write their name, or a favourite quote, in Modern Calligraphy, with Kirstie always on hand for assistance.

Please note: This Modern Calligraphy workshop is open to everyone, no previous experience required. Suitable for both left and right handers. (Kirstie is a lefty herself) The ink which will be used is permanent so please bear that in mind when picking what you wear (sleeves and wrists in particular can be at risk of getting ink on them).

£55 including a calligraphy pen with nib, paper and refreshments (10% off if you book for you and a friend)
