About this class

In this class you will discover the beautiful art of calligraphy and go from beginner to expert in no time.

Did you know?

The Chinese Brush Calligraphy is one of the traditional four arts which was once an important critical standard for the Chinese literati in the imperial era and now prevails not only in China but also worldwide as a unique branch of art.

In this class

Whether you have been writing for decades, or never picked up a pen, no prior knowledge is needed for this one!

Beginners modern calligraphy does what it says on the box – and much more. This excellent class will teach you everything you need to know starting right at the basics.

What will you be doing?

  • You will be taken through all the calligraphy tools, basic brushstrokes and techniques
  • You will get to grips with the full alphabet (even those pesky W's).

  • 1 pen holder
  • 1 nib
  • 1 pot of handmade black ink
  • 1 instructional alphabet with both upper and lower case lettering with plenty of practice sheets

Calligraphy is an art form that is meant to be shared! Embrace your beautiful creative writing with someone who shares this passion. Alternatively, there will be no shortage of fellow Obby lovers present to share the fun with you!

The writing is on the wall, creativity is contagious and Tea & Crafting is certainly doing everything to pass on the bug!

Tea & Crafting is a group of friendly artists who are partial to a bit of old-fashioned craftsmanship with a modern twist. If your undiscovered creative side is simply yarn-ing (😜 ) to get out, then join one of its craft workshops where crafty souls can congregate to do just that.

Expect to learn new skills, show off creations and have a lot of fun!

Work in friendly, small groups then throw in some top-notch guidance and a nice cup of tea, and you have got a Tea & Crafting classic. You’ll learn all the basics and leave with some goodies that you’ve made too.
