Calligraphy Short Course (Copperplate Script)
January 30 @ 1:00 pm - March 12 @ 3:00 pm£75
Join Angela Reed, from Creative Calligraphy, at The Art Room Sunderland, for a six-week course introducing the art of beautiful writing with a pointed nib.
The course will focus on Copperplate Script, from basic strokes to flourishing and layout.
Copperplate is an elegant calligraphy style, written with a dip pen and ink. The process can also be adapted to develop more modern calligraphy styles.
Angela will guide you through the basics of writing with a pointed nib, before moving on to letter formation and letter joins to create words and sentences. The sessions are relaxed and informal and suitable for beginners, as well as those who have tried calligraphy before but want to learn a new script, or brush up on lapsed skills!
All materials will be provided for you to keep so you can practice at home and refreshments will be available.
The course dates are Tuesday, January 30; February 6, 13 and 27; and March 5 and 12. each session will run from 1pm to 3pm.
