Saturday 30th March 2019, 9.30am – 3.30pm
In the first of our calligraphy workshops I’m in collaboration with Camilla Edling a very experienced artist who came to me recommended by one of my regular workshop attendees. Camilla works on wood, slate & stone as well as paper & also designs event/wedding stationary. The workshop venue is at The Barn Studio, Stonehouse, Vicarage Lane, Potten End, Berkhamsted HP4 2QZ from 9.30-3.30pm. The workshop is a full day & all refreshments & a vegetarian/vegan lunch is included in the workshop price. Camilla will start by teaching us the first steps in mastering writing with a steel nib pen & ink & by the finish of the workshop you will have designed & made your own bookmark using your knowledge & skills you have practiced during the day. The cost of the workshop is £70 with a £15 materials fee payable cash on the day. I think we will all be very surprised by our work at the end of the day-I look forward to seeing you there. All equipment is provided & the class is suitable for beginners & improvers. At the end of the day the steel nib pen is yours to take home to develop home practice for which Camilla will give you some tips.
I love letters and lettering, using a variety of tools and material to write with and on.
I started my lettering journey 20 years ago and have been teaching for the past 12 years.
If you are a complete beginner or have some experience I hope you will enjoy a day with a steel nib pen and ink!
