Overview of course
The course will enable students to competently use a broad edge pen to create beautiful scripts. The scripts covered in the first part of the day will be a basic "Round or Foundational script", an "Italic script" and the very ornamental "Gothic script".
Once students have practised this pen work, they will then have great fun drawing beautiful enlarged capital letters which they will colour and decorate.
The day will be relaxed and friendly and the tutor will give one to one assistance whenever required, and give lots of information about the scripts and project covered.
What will I learn?
During the morning examples of various projects will be shown to the students and they will be asked to choose one or two which they would like to do during the afternoon. These will include writing out and designing a simple greeting card, a well loved recipe, a simple drawing of a herb copied from source books with its Latin name and/or culinary and medical uses, a decorative child's name plaque for their room, place cards and menu for a special meal.
You may wish to bring a packed lunch, there is a vending machine for hot drinks.

Will I have to provide anything?
Students are asked to bring with them any calligraphy pens they may already have, (but not to purchase specially as the tutor will have plenty for them to borrow).
Also a pencil, a ruler, paint brushes if they have any and some plain white paper. Photocopy paper is ideal! All other items such as paints, inks, coloured pencils, and brushes will be available for students to use during the day. Some special papers and card will also be available to purchase for a very nominal amount. (approx .50p)
