Join me for a fun and festive introduction to modern calligraphy at First Trade Days in Glasgow’s west end. This workshop will bring you though the basics of modern flexible nib dip pen calligraphy and finish with applying your newfound skill to a Christmas-themed project.

We'll start with an introduction to the tools and how to use them, including assembling the calligraphy pen, using inks and understanding flow and pressure. We'll then move onto how to make basic shapes and strokes, and finally to creating letterforms using my sample modern calligraphy alphabet as a guide. Throughout the workshop I’ll demo different techniques and ways to use calligraphy for the holidays.

As a festive twist, we will end the workshop learning how to write some holiday phrases for a very special Christmas craft. After the workshop you should feel more confident in your modern calligraphy technique and ready to use your newfound skill for the Christmas season!
