This hand-on workshop will combine the opportunity to see, handle and draw examples of calligraphy from the fantastic collections at the Crafts Study Centre, introduced by Curator Greta Bertram, with chance to have a go at classic calligraphy with lettering artist Mark Brooks.

The workshop will explore the foundation of script – the starting point for practising classic calligraphy and inscribing metal, wood and glass – as well as the creative potential and applications for this craft. Participants will have the opportunity to develop calligraphy skills, using a broad edged calligraphy pen to form beautiful letters and flowing script.

No previous experience necessary. Pens, inks and materials provided.
