Arts And Crafts - Calligraphy

Discover 's best Arts And Crafts experiences, workshops and classes.



Southwark

£55

Modern Calligraphy has exploded over the past decade as a great creative craft to learn and develop at home from the comfort of your sofa, with little mess and a selection of simple tools. 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.

Modern Calligraphy for Beginners - PL

I signed up to the calligraphy class on my own and I didn't really know what to expect before coming. I need not have worried though, as I was greeted in the studio with a smiley face by Sam, the co-owner of M.Y.O, who welcomed me to have a look around while I waited for the rest of the group. He offered me tea and coffee, and said I could grab something from the bar upstairs and bring it down if I wanted. Near and Far bar upstairs had happy hour on too (£3.75 a cocktail) The class was run by Polly, who was really great. She gave us a bit of background about calligraphy before going over technique. She was relaxed yet attentive which was ideal. Even when I was blobbing ink all over the page she was encouraging, and in the end I came away with a little card that I had written on in a small frame. I am definitely keen to come back to M.Y.O and also to join Polly's map illustration class which looks fab. A lovely evening and would highly recommend.

It was a great evening learning calligraphy with Polly Crossman! Easy and funny. And... we left with our own framed calligraphy letter and our own feather to write.
