Class Description: Learn to write basic Italic and Roman letterforms. These versatile and elegant lettering styles are perfect for writing poems, certificates and invitations, and for adding a special touch to your journals and artist books.
You will experiment with a wide variety of calligraphy tools, and learn spacing techniques, interesting variations and flourishing, and the characteristics of many other different scripts.
Well-planned layout is just as important as nicely-formed letters, so students will be shown useful techniques for creating pleasing designs, and using borders and colour effectively.
Suitable for complete beginners as well as those wishing to refine their calligraphy skills.
