Brush Calligraphy Workshop

Workshop details
Date: Saturday, October 5th - 10:00am - 1:00pm

Learn how to use a brush pen to produce beautiful and expressive lettering in this 3-hour workshop with Salman Khattak.

Learn about the different types of brushes available to us and how to use them. We will do some guided exercises to learn techniques that produce various types of strokes and then use them to create different types of lettering. We will carry on to exercises in layout and textures.

We will end the workshop on a collaborative project using the skills developed during the workshop
