INTRODUCTION TO CALLIGRAPHY

(including Layout & Design)

Dates: 23 & 30 May & 6 & 13 June 2021 (4 Sunday afternoons), 1 5.30pm

Cost: $250 includes all materials (calligraphy felt pen, supplies & instructions)
OR $256.04 through Eventbrite.

Learn to write basic Italic and Roman letterforms. These versatile and elegant lettering styles are perfect for writing poems, certificates and invitations, and for adding a special touch to your journals and artist books. You will experiment with a wide variety of calligraphy tools, and learn spacing techniques, interesting variations and flourishing, and the characteristics of many other different scripts. Well-planned layout is just as important as nicely-formed letters, so students will be shown useful techniques for creating pleasing designs, and using borders and colour effectively. Suitable for complete beginners as well as those wishing to refine their calligraphy skills.

COMMISSIONS

I really enjoy doing calligraphy commissions for people. It is such a pleasure to witness their happy reactions when they see the writing I've done on their specific personalised projects . invitations, place cards, menus, poems, books, etc.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss a calligraphy project you would like me to complete for you.

My rates are very reasonable, and customer satisfaction is incredibly important to me.

EXHIBITIONS

I enjoy exhibiting my work in various exhibitions and galleries.

I really hope you will visit "Shifting Seasons" from 26 29 August this year, at Richard Randall Studio in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha in Brisbane.

This is the sixth year I have joined three fellow artists, Sue Ford, Karoline Cumming and Lyn Baxter, to display wearables, homewares, gifts and jewellery. Entry is free, and we will all be on-site to demonstrate techniques and discuss our work, and many of the items will be available for purchase.

The eclectic display will feature textiles, fibres, yarns, fabrics, papers and mixed media used in felting, calligraphy, quilting, embroidery, book making, silk painting, eco-dyeing, beading, braiding, polymer clay, silver and metal work, printing, collage and more.
