Modern Brush Pen Calligraphy for Beginners – Friday 21st June – £35 – Waitrose Cafe, HORSHAM, West Sussex

£35.00

MODERN BRUSH PEN CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP

FRIDAY 21st JUNE: 9.15am – 11.15am

WAITROSE CAFE, HORSHAM, WEST SUSSEX, RH12 1AJ

£35

The Waitrose Cafe is a fabulously welcoming community hub in Horsham and the perfect place to experience some moments of calm and rest whilst learning modern brush pen calligraphy. This is a gorgeous morning of learning calligraphy, creating greetings cards, having snacks and drinks from the cafe and maybe a wander around the fabulous John Lewis at Home store. Whether you come alone or with a friend or two, you will be made to feel very welcome by myself and the wonderful Waitrose Cafe staff. Included in the ticket price is your work pack, and all the cards you have created, to take away at the end of the workshop.

This modern calligraphy workshop is for beginners, for anyone who would like to revisit calligraphy after a break, or if you are self taught and in need of some direction. Learning modern calligraphy with a brush pen is a brilliant place to start your calligraphy adventure. We explore basic brush pen strokes, build these into letter shapes and then create words and calligraphy quotes. There are plenty of templates for you to trace over as well as experimenting with colour techniques and adding details to calligraphy.

There are many templates for you to choose from to create your own greetings cards, so you have something beautiful to take away at the end of the session. In the workshop you can experiment with all of my brush pens from different manufacturers – great for deciding which pens you prefer without having to pay for something you end up not liking!

There is no requirement to have neat handwriting or previous art experience. With templates to trace over, this is a fun and relaxing workshop.

In the week before the workshop I send you a ‘touching base’ email which contains details about the exact location of the store – there is a large car park right next to the Waitrose Cafe and John Lewis at Home store. If you have any questions about this workshop please contact me.

I have been practising calligraphy for many years, starting with learning the traditional scripts (copperplate, italic and foundational hand) at night school and learning from some of the UK’s leading traditional calligraphers. After discovering modern calligraphy, I have enjoyed manipulating the traditional letter shapes into modern styles. This is what gives my modern calligraphy its beauty and elegance.

“Laura is an absolutely lovely person. The workshop was extremely informative and well thought through, also tons of fun!”

“Laura has a lovely way about her teaching and makes it a really fun workshop. I came away with a real buzz and looking forward to doing more at home.

“Just been on one of Laura’s calligraphy courses – loved it! Very inspiring and Laura makes it look so easy – very talented lady.”
“Had a fabulous time! Her teaching is excellent and you can see clearly everything she does making it so easy to follow. She is also very generous with her knowledge and gave lots of good ideas and tips.”
