    Introduction to Modern Calligraphy | West Berkshire Villagers

    This informal, practical and inspirational workshop explores the wonderful art of writing using a nib and ink, but with a modern twist. The workshop will begin with some drill exercises to help you understand and appreciate the slow flow of the nib and basic letter forms. You’re sure to appreciate how relaxing this process is. You will then experiment writing your own postcard-sized print with a saying of your choice. This is yours to take home.

    Modern calligraphy requires a good deal of practice. You will leave this workshop with a starter set to continue your skill development at home. But most importantly, you will leave with some confidence to continue practising this beautiful skill at your leisure, helping unlock your own creative style of writing.

    Let’s make letters look beautiful!

    Spring Blossom Applique

    Make a small landscape in a day inspired by blossom trees. Images will be provided. We will collage together a fabric background, add tree trunks, then use a confetti technique, cutting tiny pieces with rotary cutters, and sprinkling these onto “mistyfuse”. Tulle is added before ironing and stitching. The composition can then be finished with hand or machine sewing as preferred. We will make a design approximately 35cm long by 35cm high max.
