About_About the Workshop:
A one day workshop to get the feel for letters, ink, paper and the tools.
We will explore the construction of letters, mark making with an emphasis on rhythm and texture helping to create emotion and expression on paper.
To develop these skills takes time, effort and dedication. This workshop will hopefully show you the potential of calligraphy both as a graphic and painterly tool.
