Dip Pen & Ink
Calligraphy Classes for Beginners & Improvers
Mistley Quay Workshops, High Street, Mistley CO11 1HB
Come and join my calligraphy classes in the riverside village of Mistley.
Immerse yourself in the art of beautiful writing - for pleasure, relaxation or study. After a short introduction to calligraphic styles, we will begin with the basics of forming elegant letters using pencil, traditional dip pen and ink.
I offer two scripts to beginners :
• Italic with a square-edged nib
• Copperplate with a pointed pen
The courses are suited to all levels of learning from absolute beginners to those wishing to improve. A small group (max 7) means you'll enjoy personal and close tuition.
There will be demonstrations of lettering and individual guidance to uncover the potential to expand your own ideas with a view to creating a unique piece of work. An array of tools and techniques used will also be explored.
