The start of a new year is a great time to learn a new creative skill and we’ve got a mindful craft you’re sure to love. Join Kirsten Burke and Maisie Minett from The Modern Calligraphy Co. to learn how to create beautiful lettering in this relaxed and informal class. This webinar from CalmMoment is brought to you in association with the craft website Gathered.how.
Modern Calligraphy is about lettering that is dynamic and has energy, so our workshop will focus on this rather than getting every letter identical, so you can relax and create your own style.
Whether you’re a complete beginner looking for a new skill, or a creative whizz adding another string to your bow, we will teach you the tricks to turn your hand to modern calligraphy whatever your skills.
You will be guided step by step though how to use a brush pen, and then learn how to form elegant letters. You will finish by creating a fab hand-lettered artwork using one of our professional templates.
