An introduction to Modern Calligraphy with Daisy Pooley-Tolkein.

Designed for complete beginners, we will be looking at exercises to practice shapes and strokes that will develop into letter formation.  By the end of the class you will have started to create your own alphabet leading to cursive script.

We're delighted to have arranged a programme of modern Calligraphy courses run by exciting young calligrapher Daisy Pooley-Tolkein.  Daisy was brought up in Shrewsbury.  She is a fine arts graduate, now based in Falmouth, Cornwall, but retaining close family links with Shrewsbury.

Daisy's teaching style combines and informal and relaxed approach, combined with a carefully structured approach which ensures pupils get the most out of their day.  

We have arranged a series of eight courses over the rest of this year on consecutive Fridays and Saturdays.  On each weekend there will be one introductory course for those new to Modern Calligraphy, and one aimed at those with some knowledge who wish to either improve their overall skills or explore a particular area in more depth.  

Course are held in the upstairs room at Write Here.  It is bright a sufficiently spacious!  The Manuscript Pen Company - the country's top manufacturer of calligraphy products based in Highley, Shropshire - generously provide all materials for the course, which you are free to take with you at the end of the day.

We are always happy to hear from our customers, please let us know if you have any enquiries and we will aim to respond promptly.
