Calligraphy Short Course

November 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - November 28, 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Put pen to paper in the run-up to Christmas and learn ‘the art of beautiful writing’ with calligrapher Angela Reed. Over four weeks, you will be guided through the basics of writing with a broad-edged nib to create an uncial script alphabet – perfect for those cards, gift tags and place settings. You will also get the chance to experiment with different tools and materials. The course is suitable for beginners and those who have tried calligraphy before, but want to learn a different script. All materials will be provided, included a calligraphy starter kit and a Christmas stationery pack to take home. Seasonal refreshments will also be available.

The course dates are: Tuesday, November 7, 14, 21 and 28, from 1pm and 3pm.
