Paul Antonio is a calligrapher with over 25 years’ experience and regularly teaches internationally.

The classes focus on gaining a deeper understanding of how both historical and modern scripts work based on accuracy of lettershape and tool control. They also help the practitioner to gain insight into a more metaphysical approach by teaching breathing techniques whilst writing.
Care will also be given to encourage analytical thinking to help you practise better at home.
