Calligraphy Workshop – Pointed Pen (FULL)

October 6, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


I’m delighted to be holding another workshop at Recreate Today and look forward to introducing people to the art of beautiful writing. In this session, we will be looking at a traditional copperplate script, using a pointed pen, with close guidance and demonstrations throughout. It will give a good grounding to anyone who wishes to pursue more modern calligraphy styles.

The cost of the session is £25 per person, with a non-refundable £10 deposit required upon booking. This can be done in store or via PayPal to Please include your name and the date of the workshop. All materials, including a starter kit to take home, and refreshments will be provided
