About this course

This Calligraphy course based in Broadstairs will be an introduction to the writing beautiful illuminated letters. You will be introduced to fine writing by learning the basics of many different scripts, making lettering come alive using a variety of pens, nib sizes, and covers.

By the end of the course, you should be able to: hold and use a calligraphy pen correctly, mark up your paper for writing on, write in a word using illuminated lettering, work to relevant Health and Safety guidelines.

There is no set ‘homework’, but you are welcome to practise and do further work at home.
