Beginners Pointed Nib Calligraphy
The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre
03300 567 025

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and provides an introduction to modern calligraphy. You will learn how to use a pointed nib and ink, working through warm-up exercises to teach you the basics, practising letterforms and joining up letters.

The workshop will finish off by making your own calligraphy piece exploring writings from the 7th century as we celebrate the ‘Home of St. Patrick Festival’. With the help of a unique template you will complete an extract from Saint Patrick’s Confessio, written on parchment style paper, for you to frame at home.

All materials are included in the workshop. Your kit will include a penholder, 2 nibs, ink, metallic paint and original worksheets & templates.
