Calligraphy at Linnels Farm

November 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Creative Calligraphy is delighted to have been invited by Linnels Farm in Northumberland to run a copperplate calligraphy class in the beautiful rural setting of its luxury barn conversion.

Copperplate is an elegant calligraphy style, written with a dip pen and ink.

In this relaxed and informal session, calligrapher Angela Reed will introduce you to the art of writing with a pointed nib before taking you through the basic strokes before moving on to letter and word formation. All materials will be provided for you to keep so you can continue your practice at home, while morning coffee and cakes and a delicious two-course lunch by ‘Papaya’ will fuel your creativity throughout the day.
