Saturday 19 October 10:30am - 1:30pm
Master the basics of modern calligraphy using brush pens.
Each person on the course will leave with their own Kuretake Fudegokochi Japanese brush pen, and Sophie’s designed worksheets. Everyone will have completed their own alphabet, and leave with two completed pieces, a watercolour with favourite quote, and also a greetings card with calligraphy greeting in a hand-drawn wreath.
They will also leave with hopefully lots of vision and inspiration of how to improve their lettering and a million ways they can use their new skill!
