WHAT WILL BE TAUGHT:

The workshop aims to introduce you to the art and craft of calligraphy. Like all art forms, calligraphy or typography is a form of self-expression. Here, artists use words and fonts to create aesthetic and literary pieces. And just like all art forms it may take a while for you to become an expert, but this workshop may well sow the seeds for the exploration.
Creativity lies all around us, and all it needs is a keen eye to seek it out. This is going to be the essence of the calligraphy workshop where the team will train you to look for alphabets and expressions in everyday things around you. The workshop will mainly deal with the Roman script and all attendees will be allowed to choose their own scripts for the workshop. This class is divided into four progressive units: Understanding the Tools, Learning Letter Structure, Learning the Alphabet, and Developing a Style. You’ll create a one-of-a-kind alphabet in a modern calligraphy style and develop a set of skills for bringing a persuasive, personal script to any personal project, wedding or otherwise!
