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…
Originally trained in precious metal design and painting, Eleanor has worked and studied as an artist and designer in the UK and South Korea for over a decade. Now based across her studios in South East London and Yorkshire, she works as a lettering artist, illustrator and creative workshop teacher.
With a passion for beautifully imperfect forms, painted surfaces and stylistic stationary for all occasions, she is always busy with a range of commissions for private and commercial clients designing invitations to personalising corporate gifts.
