**NEW RELEASE WORKSHOP** Master the art of modern calligraphy AND brush lettering!  With Anneka Slatter - Lettered by Annie.

In this beginners workshop you’ll learn the skills required to start creating beautiful hand lettering (suitable for ages 14yrs+).

During the 2.5 hours you will get familiar with a dip pen and ink, practice warm up strokes and letter drills. Once you are comfortable with your pen we will move on to joining strokes to create letter forms and then letters to create quotes, names or whatever takes your fancy. 

The cost of the class includes a calligraphy starter kit containing practise worksheets, a nib, nib holder and ink - everything you need to get started and continue with your practise.

Throughout the class Anneka will be on hand to give help and guidance where needed.

By the end of the workshop, you will have learnt:

1. How to correctly hold and use your dip pen

2. Understand how the pen works and how the ink flows

3. Calligraphy do’s and don’t 

4. How form letters and join them to create words and phrases
