Event description

Description

Tucked away in a beautiful side street in the picturesque town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire, you’ll spend this 3 ½ hour informal, practical and inspirational workshop in a rustic barn exploring the wonderful art of writing using a nib and ink, but with a modern twist.

The workshop will begin with some drill exercises to help you understand and appreciate the slow flow of the nib and basic letter forms. You’re sure to appreciate how relaxing this process is.

You will then experiment writing your own postcard-sized print with a saying of your choice. This is yours to take home.

All materials are included.

Modern calligraphy requires a good deal of practice. You will leave this workshop with a starter set to continue your skill development at home which includes:

  • nibs
  • a penholder
  • black ink
  • practice sheets
  • and other calligraphy treats.

But most importantly, you will leave with some confidence to continue practising this beautiful skill at your leisure, helping unlock your own creative style of writing.

Why not book alongside a friend or family member and enjoy a day being creative together?

Tea and coffee is provided. Participants are welcome to purchase their own additional drinks from the venue bar.

Dinner is not included but is available to purchase from a reasonably priced bar menu at the venue, The Two Brewers.
