Calligraphy Taster Course

January 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Calligraphy comes from the Greek words for beauty (kallos) and ‘to write’ (graphien), so it has become known as ‘the art of beautiful writing’. There are various styles, tools and techniques, which can be overwhelming for beginners. In this short course, join calligrapher Angela Reed, from Creative Calligraphy, for an introduction to calligraphy that will allow you to try writing with both a broad-edged pen and a pointed pen to explore basic strokes and alphabets, inks and papers and composition. All materials will be provided for you to keep and refreshments will be available.

COURSE DATES: Tuesday, January 24, Tuesday, January 31, Tuesday, February 7 and Tuesday, February 14.
