This course will teach you the basic pen and brush skills you need to create beautiful calligraphy. You'll learn what tools and materials to use to create different scripts including italic and foundational.
By the end of the course you'll be able to:
- Use pens and brushes to create a variety of different scripts
- Understand the principles of design for invitations, poetry, prose, greeting cards and decorative plaques.
You'll work on your own personal project with practical demonstrations and support from your tutor.
There will be some brushwork exercises for you to do as homework to improve your technique.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
