EDWARD JOHNSTON'S FOUNDATION HAND CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Sept 23 / 10.30-13.00 / £10
Interested in lettering and Calligraphy, get excited by stationery? This calligraphy taster is for you. Led by Calligraphy Artist, Adele Dark, this session will be a gentle introduction to the art and craft of Calligraphy.
You will learn about the beautiful Foundation Hand lower case lettering designed by the famous lettering artist Edward Johnston, the godfather of the Western Calligraphy movement and famous for his London Underground font. You will get creative with ink, square edged nib pens and paper. The wish is that students will fall in love with this beautiful, historical art and want to continue a personal journey of discovery and begin to develop skills to be able to design their own cards, posters and artwork.
Adele, a Fine Art Printmaking graduate from Brighton University and a qualified Teacher of both Primary, Secondary and Adults brings a wide range of skills and experience of working with all ages to her workshops. Adele lived in Jersey with her family for over 20 years and now lives in the Cotswolds. Www.calligraphyinthecotswolds.co.uk
