North West Calligraphy

Introduction to Calligraphy

May, June and July 2017

You have probably seen beautiful hand-written and decorated works in the past and wondered how you could learn this skill yourself. 

North West Calligraphers are pleased to offer you the opportunity to find out what this wonderful art form is all about by offering a new set of classes.

These small group sessions are intended for absolute beginners, people returning to calligraphy after a long break, or anyone wishing to brush up their script. They are run alongside our regular monthly workshops but you will have your own dedicated tutor.

We offer these sessions at the Lyceum Building in Port Sunlight on the Wirral and at Lower Withington Parish Hall (near Jodrell Bank).

The next dates are:

May 13, June 10 and July 8 at Port Sunlight

May 14, June 11 and July 9 at Lower Withington.

Beginners' Workshop
Too absorbed to notice the camera!

The classes will start at 11 am and finish at 2 pm (there will be a short break for lunch from 12.30 am when you are encouraged to join us in the main workshop to find out what we’ve been up to in our workshop that day).

The course consists of three sessions and the cost is £45 (payable in advance).  

Your experienced tutor will guide you through the basics and materials are provided for you to use in the sessions.  There is the opportunity to purchase your own ‘starter kit’ should you wish.

Should the course not run for any reason we will, of course, refund your fee.  We do need a minimum number of participants to ensure the course goes ahead.

These classes are a great way to find out if calligraphy is for you.  Once you’ve tried it we are sure you will be fascinated by the rich variety of work you can produce.

By the end of the three sessions, you will have learned the basics and feel confident about continuing with your calligraphy.

We pride ourselves on being a really friendly group of people who want to share our love of calligraphy with as many people as possible.
