Modern Calligraphy with The Brahmin Lettering Co. (December)

Looking for a new relaxing hobby, need a helping hand with your Christmas cards or simply just an script-savvy Instagram obsessive? We are delighted to host The Brahmin Lettering Co. for a Modern Calligraphy workshop this December.

Boston babe Caitlin is a longtime lover of lettering. She said farewell to the states in order to experience the best of the west by setting up her new home in Glasgow.

The Brahmin Lettering Company offer a romantic and organic take on modern calligraphy and tailors its style to the task in hand.

This 2 hour workshop will begin with an introduction to the tools of the trade and how to use them, including assembling the pen, using inks and understanding ink flow and pressure. You will then move onto how to make basic shapes and strokes, and finally create letterforms using a sample modern calligraphy alphabet as a guide.

By the end of the class we should all be more confident and starting to develop our own writing style, with plenty of time for practice and one-to-one tuition.

The price will include a basic calligraphy supply kit: 1 pen holder, 1 nib, 1 bottle of ink, alphabet and teaching guide sheets, lettering chart with light refreshments.

Date: Sunday 11th December
Time: 3-5pm
Cost: £40
Venue: Elk & Wolf, Arch 10, 19 East Market Street, Edinburgh
