This course is designed for beginners or those, who want to refresh their lettering skills and learn some new
tricks about calligraphy. We start from getting to know both pointed pen and brush pen, then moving on to
creating shapes and curves and forming them into words. You will have plenty of time to practice and improve your lettering skills, with lots of one-to-one time with Petra.
After learning about the basics, you´ll be working on creative lettering projects, such as written quotes, texts
and layouts. You can put into practice all the new skills you acquired during the day and spice your projects up
with a wide palette of fun tools & material. Metallic ink, artist gouache, a selection of paper, nibs and pens will
be at your disposal, so that you can explore the world of calligraphy supplies and use them for your projects.
During the class, we provide you coffee & tea, as well as a small lunch.
We hope that the day will inspire you and bring you new, exciting ideas. We look forward to seeing you!
