Look & Learn: Calligraphy Talks, Demonstrations and Workshops

Writing- making Your Mark

Friday 26 July 
Style: Modern Calligraphy
Modern Calligraphy is unlike traditional scripts, which require specific tools and precise measurement of heights, spaces and angles.

We'll explore the basics of Modern Calligraphy, including the tools and technique used to create stylish letters.


The introductory workshop session will give you the chance to try out the basics of Modern Calligraphy - it's also great for those wanting to use calligraphy on their wedding stationery.

Time? 11am - 1pm

Booking essential on Harris Eventbrite
