Calligraphy - Beginners / Improvers

This is a practical and creative class for beginners and those with some prior calligraphic experience.

Beginners will be introduced to the broad-edged pen, combining study of calligraphic scripts with design and layout skills. Improvers will use skills learned previously to continue their personal script and design work.  All students will have the opportunity to work towards a Certificate in Calligraphy if they wish.
