About this Event




The Calligraphy of Society is very pleased to present a workshop by author, professional artist and calligrapher Gaye Godfrey-Nicholls.

Creating Backgrounds

These Inks make calligraphy possible on shiny paper, yupo paper, even plastic and glass. During this 2-hour workshop you will create backgrounds for future calligraphy.

Suitable for all levels, even beginners with no calligraphy experience.We will experiment with different techniques for creating backgrounds using different colour combinations and substrates. At the end of the session we have a range of small samples which may be reproduced at a larger scale using the same techniques.

Note: This workshop is to create backgrounds only. There is no calligraphy. But we may run another class for lettering on the background you produce in this class.
