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, to keep - Black Chalk Co worksheets to practise with and keep - light refreshments - illegal amounts of fun
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!
