Join us for an introductory workshop on Monolinear Calligraphy.
No tools, no problem. In this fun class you will learn how to draw letters and compositions in calligraphic styles. We will learn about letter structure and family resemblance through a series of exercises. We will finish by designing a composition with decoration around it.
All you need is a pencil and paper to follow along. Colouring in the design with markers, gouache or watercolours is a lot of fun too.
