Mien Design - Introduction to Modern Calligraphy

This is the perfect workshop to ensure that you learn the basic calligraphy strokes required to form letters.

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, and those who have experienced some study of calligraphy, but have skipped out on the basics, and found that often failure has got in the way of their progress.

We will be covering the very foundational skills required to create consistently beautiful letterforms. This will give us a strong basis to build our knowledge in upcoming workshops, suited to your learning curve and ability.

You will be gaining muscle memory in your chosen hand, to ensure when you develop your understanding, it becomes second nature to create beautiful lettering, rather than a thought process interrupting your flow.

During the workshop we will -

- Discover various different Calligraphy styles

- Paper and ink choice

- Dip pen set up

- Seating position and paper angle

- Desk setup

- The anatomy of a Nib

- Nib Preparation and care

- Full overview of the basic strokes with practice time

- Put the strokes together - an overview of letter formation.

- Tutor assistance for everyone as small class size


Included in your workshop fee is a full set of professional materials required to practice, including a brush pen, dip pen with nib and ink. These will be yours to take home for practicing. Please note that you will not be proficient in calligraphy immediately after this workshop, you will be required to take on board the information and guidance you have gained, you will need to put in some practice time at home, and individuals results will vary. Further workshops will be made available to guide you through more advanced techniques.

- Priority access available to attendees for the follow on Mien Design workshop - Creating letter formation

- Access to a Private Facebook group hosted by Gina your tutor, a support network, where you can post your progress ask questions, and help support each other in your new found skill.

- Other materials will be available to purchase at the workshop such as extra nibs, holders, practice paper and ink.

Tea and coffee facilities will be available throughout the entire workshop

Please note we will be using ink, this will stain clothing if spilt, you are welcome to supply your own apron or wear older clothes should you prefer.
