Calligraphy Workshop

Sat 10th Feb 2018

Single Gallery Show

With Angela Reed

Saturday 10 February, 11am - 2pm

Price: £25

Join Angela Reed for an introduction to the art of beautiful writing.

In this workshop you will be shown how to use a calligraphy pen to form a simple calligraphy alphabet, with materials and worksheets provided so you can continue to practice at home.

Calligraphy is often defined as ‘the art of beautiful writing’.

It comes from the Greek words kallos (beauty) and graphe (writing) and has been used for centuries to herald and record important events.

There are hundreds of styles of calligraphy and just as many uses for it.

Weddings, birthdays, celebrations of achievement – these are all times when we are likely to pay more attention to words.

Whether it’s choosing a poem or a reading for a service, or expressing our feelings in a card, there’s a heightened sense of the significance of the words we share.

So these occasions offer a perfect setting for Creative Calligraphy’s beautiful writing craft.
