Pioneered by budding brides-to-be, Calligraphy has become one of the most sort after finishing touches decorating invitations and name cards adding that extra flare to the day, OR the crafty individual who likes to send and decorate cards for all occasions and a bit of a stationary geek (like me!). But where to start.... In this beginners modern calligraphy class your teacher, lettering artist and illustrator Eleanor Herring, will start by introducing you to the tools of the trade (which are yours to take away at the end of the class!) discussing materials, styles and the correct way to place the nib to paper, how to make your ink flow, as well as after care of all the materials. The class will then dive straight into practicing basic calligraphy exercises making shapes and strokes with traditional black inks and flexible nibs, before moving on to lower and uppercase letter forms, with a dash of flourishing a long the way. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style, with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help. Each class is tailored to the individual and core needs of the group and what they would like to work on.

The film directors journey begins with the screenplay. How we connect with and gain insight into the story on the page greatly influences the impact of the film we make. Once we have a vision of the film we also need to make sure we can communicate this to our other collaborators effectively and with the knowledge that the script supports our choices. In order to organise his or her directorial thoughts a director needs to understand the fine art of script analysis. For the writer/director this is doubly necessary. It is all too easy to assume our team understands the story that we know so well. Unless they are psychic or know you intimately this is unlikely to be the case. Learn how to extract the important knowledge you have buried in your brain to help others help you. In this weekend workshop we will look at practical and dynamic approaches to working with the screenplay with a view to sharing our vision with others and in addition develop multi-layered and more engaging storytelling skills as a director.
