Calligraphy - Modern Calligraphy

Calligraphy - Modern Calligraphy [FDF3668G]: Overview

Hand lettering is growing in popularity and is everywhere at the moment. Have you wondered about picking up a pointed pen and just having a go? Well on this short four week course we will be doing just that!

What will we cover?

We will start by looking at italic letter formation and translating that into a monoline alphabet using a pointed nib that allows the line to swell and create beautiful flourishes and decorative details.
We will also look at writing in colour and different design elements to create small projects such as a bookmark, notelet and greetings cards, as well as having the opportunity to try using a felt-tip brush for lettering.
