Event description

Description

Workshop

Have you ever wanted to learn the fascinating art of calligraphy? This hands-on workshop could be just for you.

Edward Johnson, widely regarded as the father of modern day calligraphy, devised the Foundational Script in the first half of the 20th century based on studies of a late Carolingian manuscript known as the Ramsey Psalter.

Using a broad-edged dip pen you will be taught this script by calligrapher and lettering artist Tina Warren. The workshop will include practical exercises and is suitable for complete beginners. Participants will take away their own written pieces, as well as an increased confidence in this beautiful art.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.

Please note: We will be introducing charges in our visitor car park later in 2018. Follow the link for further information
