Modern Calligraphy Workshop

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!

Tutor: Sophie Killiingley

Sophie Killingley is a freelance artist, specialising in modern calligraphy and brush lettering. She has run her workshops for 3 years around Surrey and Hampshire in arts centres, private gatherings and even corporate bookings, as she led a workshop for a major international firm in 2018.

Her lettering has been used in card designs for a national charity and also for daily briefing notes at a national conference.

She provides almost daily updates on her instagram page full of fun, quirky lettering and she shares helpful tutorial videos to enable others to practice her techniques for themselves.

Sophie is passionate about giving people the confidence to let go of fear of being wrong, and just start creating!

“ I gained creative confidence!”

“I loved the freedom to practise with advice”

“There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the room”

Bring along a favourite quote or song lyric, or use one of the quotes provided and create a Pinterest-worthy piece of art to take home with you.
