Workshop :: Calligraphy

We’re welcoming Maurelle from Maurelle Calligraphy back to London Fields Shoppe for another beginner workshop. For those that joined us last year, stay tuned for more details about our upcoming advanced class on Saturday, April 16th.

Focusing on modern calligraphy, Maurelle will cover the fundamentals including the basics of traditional copperplate style script where you use a sharp pointed nib rather than the flat nib used in most calligraphic writing. You will also learn how to write the complete alphabet and to find your own style, the proper use of calligraphy tools and equipment, and tips and tricks on how to hone your skills. This is a perfect workshop for those with little, or no, experience in using a pointed pen.

The 3 hour workshop includes 1 pen holder, 2 nibs, a calligraphy worksheet, a jar of ink, and a handmade wood pen holder.

The first half of the hands-on workshop will cover the above, along with getting your brushes into the paint and practicing the 6 basic strokes. While the second half will move into letters and finish up with the creation of a few pieces to take home. “The Swoop” will also be discussed, demonstrated, and if time allows, be put to use in the finished pieces.
