STUNNING CALLIGRAPHY THAT YOU CAN USE FOREVER
My in person workshops focused on teaching brush pen calligraphy skills, and then providing templates and colour inspiration to create gift tags, greetings cards and wrapping paper. To make learning calligraphy more accessible online, I have divided this workshop into two parts.
In this online course, Part One, you will learn how to use the brush pen and how to create stylish words in calligraphy. There are short, step by step video tutorials which show you very clearly how to create brush pen strokes, with lots of close-up footage as I talk you through all the things to do/think about, and what not to do, when creating your calligraphy. Along the way, there are top tips on every page to help you to focus and progress. There is plenty of material for you to watch and calligraphy for you to copy. You have life time access to the course so you can stop and start the videos as many times as you like.
When purchasing the course you will be asked to create a password so that you can access the course at any time via the 'Course Login' button at the top of each page on the website. As you progress through the course you can clearly keep track of your progress and see which videos you have completed. You can always go back to a previous video and watch it again and again!
Part Two of the course will be released in early 2021. All the skills that you have learned in Part One will be applied to creating greetings cards for many occasions, designing envelope liners, addressing envelopes and creating beautiful calligraphy wrapping paper. There are plenty of templates, designed by myself, to use and I also show you how to manipulate letter shapes to create a quote, perfect for putting onto a greetings card or into a frame. By completing both the courses you will have the whole gifting experience covered!
ENJOY THE RELAXATION
Calligraphy is an extremely mindful and meditative hobby. Immersing yourself in practising calligraphy helps to relax you and to switch off from day to day worries. Whilst unlocking creativity, practising calligraphy is a therapeutic escape from screen time and with just a brush pen and paper you can practise pretty much anywhere.
Towards the end of the course, after you have been working so hard, I have created 3 videos that are accompanied by music. So you can pour yourself a cuppa, relax and enjoy watching calligraphy being created, or pick up the pen and join in. The choice is yours!
SHARING THE CALLIGRAPHY LOVE
As well as studying traditional calligraphy styles on courses and at evening classes with expert calligraphers Gaynor Goffe and Mary Noble, I have trained in modern calligraphy with the world renowned Kirsten Burke at the Modern Calligraphy Company where I am now an Ambassador and regularly teach modern calligraphy and traditional copperplate workshops. I also create calligraphy at events with luxury brands such as Molton Brown.
Previously a primary school teacher, and now a regular teacher of calligraphy, I have years of experience planning content, teaching and understanding how people learn. I have incorporated all the frequently asked questions at my calligraphy workshops into this online course.
FALL IN LOVE WITH PRACTISING CALLIGRAPHY
With 13 videos and 25 pages, this calligraphy course offers you great value. Learning anything new takes up a lot of practice time. When you have learned a new skill, it is always helpful to know how you can use that new skill. This is why in this course, as well as informative videos, detailed instructions and helpful tips, I have created 2 pages and an accompanying video full of ideas for practising your brush pen calligraphy to make practising an enjoyable experience.
Sharing the calligraphy love is my passion and I look forward to you joining me on your journey to beautiful brush pen calligraphy.
