COURSES & WORKSHOPS
Dip Pen & Ink
Calligraphy Classes for Beginners
Mistley Quay Workshops, High Street, Mistley CO11 1HB
Join calligrapher & lettering artist Julie Chaney for 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 a variety of calligraphic styles, we will begin with the basics of forming elegant letters using pencil, dip pen and ink.
Two scripts are offered 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.
All classes are offered individually with no commitment beyond each workshop. Full day classes on Wednesdays can be booked as a block of six for a discounted rate.
