Freehand Ink Lettering

An introduction to informal hand lettering with ink and a calligraphy brush.

Students will learn some basic typographic principles before practicing different lettering styles and techniques based on their own handwriting; beginning with a series of short, simple exercises, participants will progress to designing and lettering some more finished pieces with an emphasis on developing their own lettering style.

An excellent starting-point for anyone interested in learning a more freeform method of hand lettering and adding some finesse to their everyday handwriting! A calligraphy brush and small jar of ink will be supplied to you on the day for you to take home.



Saturday December 9 / 9.00am-11.00am 

Water Colour Illustration

Learn simple techniques to achieve various effects in water colour and provide a basis for further exploration in an informal setting.

Painting small works in a single layer with a water colour palette – the most convenient and economical of painting mediums – this is the perfect starting point for both beginners and seasoned artists looking to try a new medium.

Workshop participants will complete a series of simple painting exercises to familiarise themselves with their materials before applying these techniques to render a selection of still-life subjects.



Saturday December 9 / 11.30am-1.30pm
