On this Introduction to foundational calligraphy workshop with artist Panna Chauhan you will begin with an introduction to the basics of calligraphy including the different types of nibs, correct sizing of letters and how to hold the pen with the right tension to achieve a fluid letter.
You will spend the morning learning and practicing letter forms in the basic 'foundational' hand, under Panna's watchful eye.
After a break for lunch, you will learn how to apply your traditional calligraphy skills to creating an abstract piece of calligraphy which you will take home as a reminder of your day, and to inspire you to continue practising.
You will have access to all the equipment you will need, and the price includes all materials, buffet style lunch and refreshments. You will also take home a practice pack and a framed calligraphy piece.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
Introduction to foundational calligraphy: 16 May 2020 11am-5pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials unless stated otherwise, refreshments, and of course you take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group. Please email us for more information.
