Get School'd: Mother's Day Card Calligraphy Workshop says
What’s it all about?

Spring into this season with fun, heartfelt cards! Practice techniques and learn the basics of calligraphy to design beautiful cards just in time for Mothers Day (and any upcoming celebration). At this workshop, you’ll have the chance to play with bright colours as you develop the skills to create personalized hand drawn messages with supporting illustrations. By the end of the session, you’ll walk away with calligraphic skill and an awesome set of cards created with your own personal touch.

What will we cover?

We’ll focus on the use of a few essential tools for professional work: 2 types of brush pen calligraphy and gel pen lettering. Working within a modern approach, you’ll learn the main characteristics of style development and we’ll cover and practice the common considerations: straight vs. italic; sharp vs. rounded; all caps vs. lowercase; and flourishing. We’ll also walk through the steps to creating a successful art layout for the final cards: sketching thumbnails; combining style variations; and preparation, planning and execution for a fun, heartfelt piece.
