Contemporary Calligraphy

In this six week course, experience the world of calligraphy with qualified and experienced calligrapher, Judith Ann from Beautiful Writing.

Judith will entertain you by dipping the nibs into ink and dancing across the page to leave a flourish and trail of ink as she writes the many different alphabet styles. From pointed pen, brush lettering and writing with chopsticks, to bottle tops and cola pens; you will hear the tools of her trade swoosh and skate as she writes her demonstration. 

Learn how to draw a flourish by pencil to add pizazz to your own hand writing style and watch Judith write your name on a take home place card.
