Course description

Introduction to Calligraphy:

What does this programme involve?

In this hands-on workshop, students will learn the foundations of this popular lettering style.

You will be gently introduced to some of the pen strokes that help make letterforms.

Beginning with pencil, students will gain an understanding of the underlying structure of Italic hand, before moving on to tackle the alphabet with a calligraphy pen using ink or gouache.

Students will learn how to be comfortable with their tools, materials, and lettering, and building confidence to develop a calligraphic composition.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

  • You will learn from guided practice and demonstration.

What else do I need to know?

  • Please bring paper, pencil, eraser, ruler, and reading glasses (if required) to the workshop.
