Evening

Located in the heart of Mayfair, in London's top antiquarian bookshops, come and try your hand at Modern Calligraphy and learn how to write beautifully in pen and ink, with lettering artist and illustrator Eleanor Herring.

In this beginners modern calligraphy class Eleanor will start by introducing you to the tools of the trade (which are yours to take away at the end of the class!) discussing materials, styles and the correct way to place the nib to paper as well as after care of all the materials.

The class will then dive straight into practicing basic calligraphy exercises making shapes and strokes with traditional black inks and flexible nibs, before moving on to lower and uppercase letter forms, with a dash of flourishing a long the way. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style, with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help.

The class is tailored to the individual and core needs of the group and what they would like to work on.

Each ticket includes a selection of complimentary tea and cake from the gorgeous The Vintage Rose.

Every student will leave with;

1 x Dip pen holder

1 x Nib

1 x Pot of Black Ink

1 x Exercise and Letter Guides

1 x Workbook

3 x Line Guides
