Intermediate Calligraphy: Different Tools & Mediums

Using a variety of different tools, not just pens, is an exciting way to extend your calligraphic skills. The tools we are going to use are not necessarily made to be used calligraphically, for example those made from natural materials such as sticks and plants. After also experimenting with a variety of mediums, we will explore how best to use these options in combination with more traditional pens. This will result in the class producing a calligraphic calendar at the end of the term. All you need to join this course is to have learnt one calligraphic script.
