Beginners Modern Calligraphy Class
Under the expert guidance of Phylecia Sutherland, this weekend we drew away the day in a meditative trance, practicing our strokes and learning the art of Modern Calligraphy.
Phylecia provided us with our own workbooks which we worked through together, our own tools (which we got to keep!) and even delicious brownies she baked herself!
Over the course of the 3 hours we learnt the difference between different types of calligraphy, how ‘Modern Calligraphy’ differs from more traditional styles, how to use our tools, and how to create strokes to create pretty letters.
She was so generous with her knowledge and expertise, sharing with us the tips and tricks she’s learnt over the years building up to being able to string together some beautiful sentences from the letters we learned! They weren’t as beautiful as Phylecia’s of course, but with a little practice we’ll be personalising out gifts with slightly wonky but endearing hand lettered name tags in no time!
