Try your hand at calligraphy...

Join Calligraphy Lancashire for a series of talks and demonstrations looking into the beautiful world of calligraphy. You can even have a go at recreating these ornate styles as each talk is followed by an optional 'hands-on' workshop.

At the workshop, you will learn the skills to recreate the striking calligraphy that you have seen during the talk; it's a great chance to enhance and develop your own beautiful writing style.

Please note that you will be looking at a different style at each session.

In this session

This style for this session is 'Lettering and Mark-Making'.

Let's take a closer look at the art of lettering which can have more in common with drawing or painting letters than with traditional handwriting. Each letter requires patience, precision, and creativity. You will explore different variations of letters and scripts as well as advanced techniques such as brush lettering. Get ready to see a huge variety of lettering and mark-making styles.

At the introductory workshop session, you will give be able to try some modernised and abstract lettering techniques using pencil, crayon, watercolour pencils etc.
