Modern calligraphy is a fresh, new style that brings a flexibility and uniqueness that is both appealing and accessible. You will have seen this on trend script everywhere and the beauty of learning this style is that it is easy to master and personalise, making it unique to you. Modern Calligraphy lends itself to a more fluid, closer-to-your-handwriting approach than other, more structured calligraphy styles.
This workshop can be attended as a half day (am or pm) or a full day where you will have the opportunity to learn more and practice more throughout the day. Either way the session will be light hearted, fun and aimed to give an understanding of the skills needed to produce this very popular and beautiful script.
