CALLIGRAPHY: EMBRACING BALANCE
SATURDAY 18th NOVEMBER
The Makers Studio, Shadwell.
+ FREE ENTRY TO OUR INTERVIEW SERIES 'LET'S CHAT' ON 18TH NOVEMEBER/ 7pm
The Bezalel Calligraphy workshop is a three-hour introduction to modern calligraphy, covering everything you need to know to get started and continue with your new skills at home.
The class begins with an introduction to calligraphy tools and principles, such as hand positions, pressure and ink flow. You’ll progress through the initial warm-up exercises into writing uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers, eventually writing complete words. Each person will receive plenty of one-to-one teaching and their own calligraphy pack and tools to take home.
In keeping with our weekend theme of Embracing Winter, this class will focus on balance - the balance of applying just the right amount of pressure and the right amount of ink, and of taking time to learn slowly through repetition.
The workshop will be taught by Maria Mueller of wortpracht - creative studio (www.wortpracht.co), an experienced modern calligrapher. After training in San Francisco, Maria now teaches calligraphy workshops in Munich and Vienna as well as creating beautiful custom calligraphy work for her clients.
