Haven't you heard? Digital is sooooo last year -- and handmade is BACK, baby! Join Emma from Black Chalk Collective and get those creative juices flowing during a fun introduction to the beautiful art of modern calligraphy (pointed pen!)

During the workshop, we will explore and discuss:
- handwriting vs hand lettering
- what modern calligraphy is
- beginner tools and how to use them 
- the staple strokes of modern calligraphy
- how to form letters and words using these strokes
- how to develop your own unique style
- basic design principles to make your work 'pop'
- what you can create with your newfound skills

What is provided:
- a kit with all of the supplies you'll need including pen holder, nibs, ink and paper, to keep
- Black Chalk Co worksheets to practise with and keep
- light refreshments
- illegal amounts of fun
- appearance by a special guest!

What to bring:
- your wonderful creative self!
- a word / phrase / quote you'd love to learn how to write. Your own name is more than fine!

No prior experience with pointed pens or hand lettering is necessary - and having good handwriting is NOT a prerequisite.

Class size is limited to ensure plenty of time for your questions and to receive individual feedback on your progress/work.

Please provide your preferred email address when registering, to ensure you receive the pre-workshop questionnaire.

If you have any questions about the workshop please email Emma at hello@blackchalkco.com

Hope to see you there!
